By now, almost everyone might have heard the story that allegedly played out last evening at Marriot Hotel in Georgetown, Guyana, South America. For those of you who haven’t, let me recap. A young man took a young lady out to dinner. He ordered, and they both ate, food and wine totaling a cost of about $56,000 GYD. At some point, the young man called a taxi and ditched the young woman. However, he sent the taxi driver back to uplift a second round of take-away order. The taxi driver was asked about the bill. When he said he didn’t know about it, he was held responsible and obligated to pay. By that time, the young man probably fled the scene with another taxi or on foot.
Both men were interviewed by ranks of the Grove Police station and CID during which it was suspected their report was false in nature. As a result, a search was carried out on their respective haversacks and during so, the aforementioned items which they claimed they were robbed of were found therein.
They were both told of the offence committed, cautioned, arrested and placed into custody, and items lodged.
