The police have been called in to investigate the issues surrounding the disappearance of some construction material that was left in the compound of Castellani House.
Vishnu Bandhu, the Chief Executive Officer of V.B. General Construction Company Incorporated, which is located in Vreed-en-Hoop, said that his workers have been constructing a bridge aback of Castellani House, and that some new material was left in the compound on Monday for safekeeping.
“We stop work about midday, and we left the materials there for safekeeping, now when we go back couple hours after, the materials gone. Some did left on the road, but I don’t mind that because anybody on the road could’ve passed and picked it up,” Bandhu said.
The man noted that the stolen items (timber which can be valued $100,000) were large, and would’ve had to be transported by truck.
“A truck would’ve had to come in this place and carry away these wood, and yet nobody seems to know about it.”
Bandhu said that he finds it most worrying that the area is the “Presidential area”, yet security cannot account for the material.
“It is a shame because the Office of the President is right over there, yet things getting stolen.”
The man is in the process of penning his dissatisfaction to the Office of the President.
Meanwhile, Kaieteur News learnt that the security guard on duty during the time that the material went missing has been called in for questioning.
