Further to my previous statement dated May 9th 1990 at 3.40pm on Thursday March
29th 1990 I went to the Scenes of Crime Office at Police Headquarters, Prospect.
At this time I was in company with Customs Officers Rodill and Pitcher.
At the Scenes of Crime Office I saw Detective Sergeant Cassidy, Detective
Constable Providence and Keith Fryer, a Government Analyst. I saw the six
packages that I had seen C/O Rodill remove from the two television sets on March
28th 1990. I recognised them as a result of the writing on the outside of
the packages that I described earlier. Four of the packages had been cut
open and I could see that they contained plant material. Inside two of
them I could see what appeared to be a sheet of fabric softner inside the duct
tape. I saw Mr Fryer remove the plant material from the four packages,
weigh it and take representative samples from it. He then placed it in a
trash bag and sealed it with red evidence tape. I then saw D.S. Cassidy
cut open the duct tape on the remaining two packages. I could see that
each package contained plant material. Mr Fryer removed the plant material
from each package, he weighed it,
took representative samples from it and placed it in a trash bag that he sealed
with red evidence tape.
At 4.30pm the same day I left the Scenes of Crime Office.
Statement recorded by D.S. Rollin between 1035 and 1055 5/6/90 at Police H.Q.`s.
