Constable gives back lost Cdn$$ to overseas visitor
Not many visitors to Guyana have pleasant experiences with members of the Guyana Police Force. However, one 78-year-old Canada-based Guyanese who had lost his pouch containing Can$10,500 will be cherishing his experience with the local Police Force.
The man, Abdool Haleem, was an outgoing passenger to Canada on a Caribbean Airlines flight yesterday afternoon when he had a call of nature just before clearing immigration.
After answering the call in one of the washrooms of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri, Haleem forgot his pouch which contained the cash and his passport behind. It took him a while to realise what he had done and by that time he had completely forgotten where he had left his belongings
A frantic search was launched and fortunately for Haleem, the pouch was recovered by a police Detective Constable Alvin Fraser, who handed it back to the elderly gentleman.
Reports reaching this newspaper stated that Haleem could not contain his relief and heaped praises on the rank and the Guyana Police Force.
