Police Officer: Good morning. What can I do for you?
Louise Taylor: I want to report a theft. I had something stolen out
Police Officer: of my bag yesterday. I’m sorry to hear that. Right. So I’ll need to take a few details it Can I start with your name?
Louise Taylor: Louise Taylor.
Police Officer: Okay. Thank you. And are you a resident in the UK?
Louise Taylor: No, I’m actually Q1 Canadian though. My mother was British.
Police Officer: And your date of birth?
Louise Taylor: December 14th, 1977.
Police Officer: So you’re just visiting this country?
Louise Taylor: That’s right. I come over most summers on business. I’m an interior designer, and I come over to buy old Q2 furniture. Antiques. You know, there are some really lovely things around here, but you need to get out to the small towns. I had a really good trip this year until this happened.
Police Officer: Okay, so you’ve been here quite a while.
Louise Taylor: Yes, I’m here for two months. I go back next week.
Police Officer: So may I ask where you’re staying now?
Louise Taylor: Well, at present, I’ve got a place at Q3 park apartments that’s on King Street. I was staying at the Riverside Apartments on the same street, but the apartment there was only available for six weeks, so I had to find another one.
Police Officer: Okay. And the apartment number 15. Right Now, I need to take some details of the theft. So you said you had some things stolen out of your bag. That’s right. And were you actually carrying the bag when the theft took place?
Louise Taylor: Yes. I really can’t understand it. I had my backpack on and I went into a supermarket to buy a few things. And when I opened it up, my wallet wasn’t there.
Police Officer: And what did your wallet have, innit?
Louise Taylor: Well, fortunately, I don’t keep my credit cards in that wallet. I keep them with my passport in an inside compartment in my backpack, but there was quite a bit of cash there. About £Q4 250 sterling. I should think I withdrew £300 from my account yesterday, but I did a bit of shopping, so I must have already spent about £50 of that. Okay, At first I thought, Oh, I must have left the wallet back in the apartment. But then I realised my Q5 phone had gone as well. It was only a week old, and that’s when I realised I’d been robbed. Anyway. At least they didn’t take the keys to my rental car.
Police Officer: Yes. So you say the theft occurred yesterday? Yes. So that was Q6 10th September And do you have any idea at all of where or when the things might possibly have been stolen?
Louise Taylor: Well, at first I couldn’t believe it because the bag had been on my back ever since I left the apartment after lunch. It’s just a small backpack, but I generally use it when I’m traveling because it seems safer than a handbag. Anyway, I met up with a friend and we spent a couple of hours in the Q7 museum but I do remember that as we were leaving there at about four o’clock, a group of young boys ran up to us and they were really crowding around us, and they were asking us what Q8 time it was. Then all of a sudden they ran off.
Police Officer: Can you remember anything about them?
Louise Taylor: The one who did most of the talking was wearing a T-shirt with a picture of something. Uh, let’s see a tiger.
Police Officer: Right. Any idea of how old he might have been
Louise Taylor: around 12 years old.
Police Officer: And can you remember anything else about his appearance?
Louise Taylor: Not much. He was quite thin.
Police Officer: Colour of hair.
Louise Taylor: I do remember that. He was Q9 blond All the others
Police Officer: were dark-haired. And any details of the others?
Louise Taylor: Not really. They came and went so quickly.
Police Officer: Right? So what I’m going to do now is give you a crime reference number so you can contact your insurance company. So this is 10 digits. Q10 8795482361
Louise Taylor: Thank you. So should I contact you?
