Revelers turned out in their numbers for DJ Stress’s Retro Party at the Buddy’s Int’l Hotel and indeed all had a rollicking time, except one welder who could not find his car at the conclusion of the party.
Ravindra Harripersaud, of 4 Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara, told this newspaper yesterday that he had left his AT 192 Toyota car, with registration number PJJ 4369 in the hotel’s parking lot around 21:00 hrs on Monday night but could not locate it at 03:00 hrs the following morning when he returned to the location he had parked it.
He said that inquiries made to the security guards ‘were a waste of time’ since they (the guards) argued that a large number of cars were traversing the venue, making it impossible for them, to ascertain whether the missing car was driven out of the hotel compound.
Harripersaud said when he approached the hotel management he was informed that because of renovations to a section of the hotel, most of the surveillance cameras were not in operation.
This camera was reportedly taken to the Providence Police Station where the matter was reported, and according to Harripersaud he was able to view footage from this camera. He said that he saw a car fitting the description of the one he owned leaving the location and heading towards the city. He noted that the footage was too blurred to ascertain the individual driving the car at the time.
According to the car owner, at some time during the party while he was going to the washroom the DJ announced that a car was broken into. The man said that since he was hurrying to the urinal he did not pay much attention to the announcement.
When the promoter of the party, Paul Bonar, a/ka DJ Stress, was contacted yesterday he said that it was the responsibility of the hotel management to provide security for patrons’ vehicles and emphasized that he has a contract drafted out to that effect.
Efforts to speak with a representative of the hotel yesterday met with a woman receptionist continuously affirming that there was no one available to comment on the incident.
The police at Providence are investigating the matter
