At 1030 hours, from the observation, the team found that the money and jewels had been taken away from shelves and safe because they were left open. The commander met the victim, Mr. Harry Orton and he was requested to make a list of missing items. Then, the victim immediately prepared a list of stolen items: cash money, gold and silver jewels and handed it over the team commander, Mr Justin. Mr. Harry told the police team that he had fixed the CC camera on the ceiling. The commander took the camera with him to the station for investigation.

 At 1145 hours, in the investigation office, Mr. Justin, with other four police officers saw the video about burglary. The video showed that two thieves burgled in the evening. The burglars were wearing red T-shirts and blue jeans and were covering their faces with red handkerchiefs at the time of burglary. The camera also showed one of them was lame who was just carrying a black bag with a loop at the top of the bag. The other was seen opening the shelves with the help of rod which was about one meter long. After seven minutes, they escaped through the back door leaving the shelves open. The Duty Officer of the Sudan Civil Station # 4, Mark Hendry, with ID No.039 radioed to all the police stations regarding the case.

At 1205 hours, after seeing the video, a special police team called Quicker Team # 2 was about to leave the premises in search of the suspects as shown in the video. At the same time, the commander, Mr. Justin, received a radio-message from another local police station called Sudan Security Police Station # 5, located at grid reference LT 102, five kilometers away, that the man who had one leg short was arrested during patrolling. The same team Quicker Team # 2 proceeded to the location and contacted to Asim Tanvir, the in-charge of the Sudan Security police station # 5. The man was wearing the same clothes which were shown in the video so that Mr. Justin easily recognized the suspect. The man was brought to the Sudan Civil Police station # 4. During interrogation, he confessed to robbing the jewel shop with his friend. He also stated that it was not his plan; he was just helping his friend, otherwise he would be beaten. He described his friend as muscular built with shaved hair and V-shaped bald, and had a hole on his left ear.

 Mr. Justin and Asim Tanveer formed a special force called ‘Straight Operation’ of nine police officers including two investigation officers and they proceeded to get around the city in search of the main suspect. The police officer of local police station had checked the details of the suspect and found that his real name was Mazrin; there were some cases registered against him. Among them, two were about rape, four kidnapping school children and three were theft. With his sketch, ‘the Operation Team’ along with two sniffer dogs was mobilized to the suspicious places.

NARRATIVE
On the 15th January, 2010, Wednesday at 23:00 hrs, a jewelry shop was burgled in the city of Delmas.  An interview was conducted at the Police Investigations Office at 1300 hours the following day, on Thursday 16th of January. The victim Harry Orton stated that he had to attend a birthday party of his accountant's elder sister, the house located in KARIMA, Northern-Sudanese market town.  So, he closed his shop earlier than usual at around 1800 hrs. That night he enjoyed the party a lot and drank some pegs of whisky. The next morning he woke up late and had breakfast at around 09:30 am. After having breakfast he went to his shop. As he reached there he was shocked to find his shop broken into. He stood in front of the shop and yelled, “Oh, My God! My shop has been burgled. Somebody help me, please.” After hearing his yelling, people gathered around him. Someone made a call to the local police and a team of three policemen arrived at 10:15 hours. The police had a look everywhere inside the shop and observed everything there. They found the safe and shelves open which meant that the thieves had taken all the money and jewels. According to the victim, there were $3,000 cash and gold and silver jewels worth $1.5 million missing. They had taken everything. However, Mr. Orton didn’t lose hope and immediately informed to the police about the CC camera, which was concealed on the ceiling of the shop. Luckily, the thieves had turned on the light in the shop and the camera was able to capture some clips of the event. The police took that camera to the police station. With the help of the camera, they came to know that the time of the burglary was between 23:00 hrs to 23:45 hours. They also knew two thieves were involved in burglary. One of them was recognized by the victim- He had visited his shop twice a week before. He had taken a look at some jewels but had left without buying any. Mr. Orton didn’t know his name or address, but he said that he could identify him if he saw him.  Both robbers were around 26 years old, 170 centimeters tall and wore T-shirt and jeans. One of them had a Cobra Tattoo on his right arm and he hobbled while walking, like his left leg was shorter. So the police could easily mark him. 2 weeks passed but the local police did not catch the thieves. Here is the dialogue between UN Police Officer and Mr.Orton.
DIALOGUE
Harry      :       Hello, Good morning! I am Harry Orton and would like to report a burglary which occurred in my jewellery shop.
UNPOL  :    Oh, Good morning Mr. Orton! When and where did it happen?

Harry      :    It happened at 23:00 hrs on the 15th January 2010, Wednesday at my shop located at 23 Mill Road, Delmas.
UNPOL  :    What time had you closed your shop that day?

Harry      :    I had closed my shop at 1800 hrs, earlier than other days.
UNPOL  :    Why had you closed you shop so early?

Harry      :    That day I had to attend my friend’s birthday party so I left the shop earlier.
UNPOL  :    Normally, what time do you open and close your shop?

Harry      :  Usually, I open my shop at 0900 hours in the morning and close it at 20:00 hours at night.
UNPOL  :    When did you come to know that your shop was robbed?

Harry      :    I came to know about this the next morning at around 09:00 am, when I came to open my shop as usual.
UNPOL  :    Particularly, what did they take from the shop?

Harry      :    They took $3,000 cash, and all gold and silver jewellery.
UNPOL  :    OK, How much were the stolen goods worth?

Harry      :    The robbed goods were worth approximately $1.5 million
UNPOL  :    Mr. Orton, had you managed any security system in your jewellery shop?

Harry      :     Yes, there was a CC camera concealed on the ceiling of the shop.
UNPOL  :       That’s good. Did you call the police and what time did they arrive?

Harry      :    Not me, someone called the police and they arrived at 10:15.
UNPOL  :    Was there any proof in the video?

Harry      : Yes. Police took that camera to the station. There was an important clip recorded in the camera. It showed that theft had taken place between 23:00 hrs to 23:45 hrs and there were two thieves involved in burglary. I had seen one of them- he had visited my shop twice a week before. He had taken a look at some jewels but had left without buying any.
UNPOL  :    Good. Do you know his name and address?

Harry      :    No.  I don’t know his name or address.
UNPOL  :    What did they look like?

Harry      :They were both around 26 years old, 170 cm tall, in T-shirts and jeans. One of them had a Cobra Tattoo on his right arm and he hobbled while walking like his left leg was shorter. So police could easily mark him.
 UNPOL :    Has the local police started their investigation in this case?

Harry      :    I don’t think so. They have kept the camera and the clips and just filed the case but they have not started the investigation seriously. I visited them several times in the last two weeks but they have neither arrested the culprits nor started the investigation.
UNPOL  :    Ok, Mr. Orton all your reports have been noted and we will visit the local police and inquire about this case and UNPOL also will start its own investigation.

Harry      :    Thank you Officer.
