NARRATIVE
With reference to the fatal traffic accident in City Market on 2 April 2012, the Harbel City Central Police Station Commander was briefed by the Duty Shift Leader of the progress in the case. After the preliminary investigation at the scene in the Market, at 19.10 hrs, the police went to the minibus owner’s garage located at the address: Ocean Street 24. Upon arrival, the police patrol found a man hiding in the garage. He initially refused to open the garage door but police managed to break into it and arrested the man who appeared to be the minibus owner, Elvis Scale. Police patrol believed that the suspect was preparing his escape. As a result of a garage search, police found one unregistered Beretta pistol, one AK-47 submachine gun and a box with mixed ammunition. Interrogation revealed that Elvis had stored the weapons since the war time as he was one of the unit commanders. He wanted to keep it “just in case” because he did not believe that regular police would be able to maintain public order and peace in the communities.

He stated that he had left the keys of his minibus with the conductor earlier but that he did not expect his conductor to take a drive. When Elvis learnt of the accident he believed the police might search for him and so he decided to escape. He was not sure of the conductor’s exact whereabouts but he recalled a conversation they had had together in which the conductor talked about his cousin's 2-storey white building where he resided in Freedom Square.

The police patrol proceeded to Freedom Square and demanded access into the two-storey white house. When no response was received, they looked around the immediate area and saw a person running through the back yard. The police patrol chased and apprehended him. According to his documents and the description received earlier, the person was identified as John Masters, a 25 year-old minibus conductor suspected of committing the traffic accident which resulted in one fatality. Police could smell a strong odor of alcohol on him. Further tests revealed his blood alcohol content at the level of 0,15 per cent.

John Masters stated that one day before the incident he had had a quarrel with his girlfriend residing near the market, who had blamed him for his inability to earn money and his inability to drive a car. The next day, when riding along with Elvis Scale, he decided to demonstrate his driving skills to her. By the time they arrived at the Market, John had drunk almost a full glass of local rum from a flask he had with him. And when Elvis stepped out for dinner, John Masters admitted that he took the driver’s seat and drove away. While moving toward the Market exit, he lost control at one of the curves in the road and accidentally hit a man near the clothing shop.  John then said he crashed into the wall of the shop. He got scared of the consequences and fled the scene immediately.
DIALOGUE
Station Commander:
Good morning, Sergeant. I would appreciate receiving the details of that traffic accident. Could you please brief me on the development of this case after the traffic accident scene investigation?

Police Shift Leader:
Absolutely Commander. After the completion of investigation procedures in the Market place, Patrol team left for the address Ocean Street 24 mentioned by the witness. We found the garage doors locked but we could see the light inside.

Station Commander:
Were you allowed in?


Police Shift Leader:
No, we demanded entry but, the man inside refused to open the door.  In the end, we forcibly broke in and apprehended him.

Station Commander:
How did the Team identify him?


Police Shift Leader:
We found his Driving License stating his name as Elvis Scale. In the market earlier the restaurant owner stated that this was the name of the minibus owner.

Station Commander:

Why did he escape from the Market?
Police Shift Leader:
According to the initial statement taken in the garage, he did not expect his conductor to go for a drive. When he learnt of the accident he realized that police might search for him and he decided to escape.

Station Commander:
Did you find anything else in the garage?


Police Shift Leader:
Yes. We searched the garage and found one unregistered Beretta pistol, one AK-47 submachine gun and a box with mixed ammunition.  Everything was taken, recorded and dispatched to the Station.

Station Commander:
How did he explain the origin of the weapon and ammunition?


Police Shift Leader:
He said that he had been storing the weapon since the time of the war as he was one of the unit commanders. He wanted to keep them “just in case” because he did not believe that regular police would be able to maintain public order and peace in the communities.

Station Commander:

OK, what did you do after the dispatching him to the police custody?
Police Shift Leader:
Before we did it, we asked Elvis if he knew the whereabouts of his conductor, and he assumed that John Masters could be at his cousin’s house in Freedom Square.

Station Commander:

Are you talking about the big white house?
Police Shift Leader:
Correct, the 2-storey white house. We arrived there just when John was trying to escape through the backyard. When we got him he was obviously drunk. Further lab test revealed the blood alcohol content at the level of 0,15 per cent.

Station Commander:

Why did he drive the minibus?


Police Shift Leader:
He said that the day before the accident, he had had a quarrel with his girlfriend, who had blamed him for his inability to earn money and even drive a car.

Station Commander:

And what did he do?
Police Shift Leader:
The next day, when riding along with Elvis Scale, he decided to show his girlfriend that he could drive. When Elvis stepped out for dinner, John who was already quite drunk after drinking almost a full glass of rum, drove away. While driving towards her house, which was near the Market, he lost control at one of the road curves and hit a man near the clothing shop and crashed into the wall of the shop. He got scared of the consequences and fled the scene immediately.

Station Commander:

Ok, Sergeant. Thank you for doing a good job. Make sure that all documentation is prepared properly for further proceedings.
