On Tuesday 29th March 2016 DC Adam Armstrong-Sexton visited UK Protection to enquire whether a white male in his mid/late 60’s wearing a fawn coloured trench coat using the name David Kay had entered any stores and attempted to sell any Rolex or Cartier watches. He was wanted for breach of bail, outstanding warrants and was on a recall to prison notice as well as being arrestable for several further fraud offences recently committed to the value of £150,000. UK Protection obtained some police images and circulated these to staff across the network with a full description.
The next day a UKP PRISM TEAM member spotted the male in Jermyn Street and kept covert observations on him until he was joined by a colleague where they approached Mr Kay and detained him on behalf of the met police. Other UKP staff attended the scene and called DC Armstrong-Sexton directly who immediately attended and arrested Mr Kay. In his possession he had over £27,000 in cash and stated he was due to fly to Belfast tomorrow.
DC Armstrong-Sexton – “I cannot thank the officers from UK Protection enough. In less than 24hrs your team have detained one of the West Ends most prolific fraudsters.”
Detective Superintendent Jayne Snelgrove – “May i take this opportunity to thank yourselves for your invaluable contribution to this enquiry without which there was every chance that Mr Kay would have escaped the jurisdiction.”
Mr Kay was returned to prison and given a significantly increased sentence.
