An optometrist and first year medical student of the University of Guyana, Carla Nikita Cassiano, is seeking the public’s help in recovering items stolen from her car. She suspects that the items might have ben stolen yesterday afternoon between 4:30 PM and 6:30 PM while she was out playing football at the Liliendaal Football field on the East Coast of Demerara, Guyana, South America. Carla Nikita Cassiano is the proprietor of Cassiano’s Fashion Eyewear.

Ms. Cassiano relates that she parked her car at a parking spot near to the Liliendaal Football Field yesterday afternoon, 8th of September, 2021, at around 4:30 PM, and went out into the field to play football with about 16 other persons who were there training. Aside from the football players, there were some construction workers and a man on a bicycle in the vicinity of where the products are believed to have been stolen.

This Trial Lens Kit, valued at about 670 US dollars, was stolen from Ms. Cassiano’s car.
1 Ophthalmoscope valued at about 845 US dollars was stolen from Ms. Cassiano’s car, presumably yesterday afternoon between 4:30 PM and 6:00 PM.

After the games, Ms. Cassiano returned to her car at around 6:00 PM and drove home. However, the next morning, it was discovered that her handbag containing her ID card and $80,000 along her professional trade products were missing.

The items stolen are as follows

  1. 1 Trial Lens Kit valued at about 670 US dollars
  2. 1 Ophthalmoscope valued at about 845 US dollars.
  3. ID card bearing the name Carla Nikita Cassiano
  4. $80,000 Guyana dollars

Nikita relates that she depends on these trade tools to work part time while she pursues a MBBS at the University of Guyana, and since she has recently paid her University fees, she is in very compromised financial position since she cannot afford to buy new ones at this moment.

The young woman is confused as to why someone would steal professional trade products since those items would be difficult to sell on the black market and further they cannot be of use to the thief. Nevertheless, we believe that the thief or thieves will very likely go about trying to sell those products so Nikita is asking the general public to kindly keep an eye out and contact her if they notice anyone trying to sell such items.

If you have any information that can lead her to recovering her products, please contact Carla Nikita Cassiano on:
