Woman whose possessions were loaded into wrong car recovered – then stolen - Update

The possessions of a chef which were loaded into the wrong car by her hapless flatmate were recovered – before being stolen. Unlucky Faye Pounder was ”so happy” when she received a call from police to say a man had found her belongings in a ditch near to a police station in Bristol. She was even more delighted when police read back a list of items recovered to her – as almost every item had been found.

But by the time a PCSO went to recover the property all that remained was one shoe, a tax disc and a few items of clothing stuffed into a plastic bag. Faye, 25, who is now living in Penzance, Cornwall, with fiancé Ali Walker, 31, said she could not believe the way everything had turned out. She said: ”I was so happy when I got the original call through and when she read through the list the majority of it was there, it was just perfect.

”But then when the PCSO called later she told me that when she got there to pick up the stuff she only had a few items. I just can’t believe people. Who steals someone’s stuff from a ditch? Who puts it there in the first place? I don’t understand why they couldn’t have handed it in. The worst thing is that someone took the time to rifle through my bags and take what they wanted.

”They left one shoe which is hardly any help.” Faye’s belongings were originally lost when hapless flat mate Paul Robbins, 26, a DJ from Bristol, loaded them into the wrong car – which was then driven off. The mix-up happened when he mistook an unlocked silver Citeron Xsara Picasso for Faye’s white car, also a Citeron Xsara Picasso, last Monday.
