Itís only me again, ďDave Courtney O.B.E.Ē. Thank you, for
letting me know you received my letter, I sent ya, offering
my help with all this.
But I do have a problem, now that the car wasnít returned to
me and the reason for that, is I didnít make a big fuss
about the missing Duster, because I truly felt that after
explaining to you that, I can prove, I got in the car with
it and as I was taken out of my car by your firm, it had to
be in it still and you told me, you had the list of names,
of who searched the car.
That, it would only be matter of time before it just turned
up in my car before I collected it. And, it would all be
dealt with adultly, with no fuss which is my way now.
I know you monitor my website and must know that, I havenít
even mentioned it, as if it never happened. But now the car
has not been given back to me itís blown my theory of what
you were going to do with this duster, out of the fucking
water ainít it? Ha, ha, ha. How wrong was I? ha, ha, ha
So it is now important to me. How or why my car, was not
there when I came to collect it? Even though, I had done it
within the time specified on the form you gave me to get it
from the compound. Within the seven dayís. I did say to the
arresting officer that it was my car and so did Brendon and
my son say it was my mine. I also said on the tape it was
mine and who I had brought it from and who had bought it for
me. I also explained that the log book was still in the name
of the previous owner and she would be able to help with the
original number plates that were on the car before she put
her personalised plates on it. Which I, did not purchase and
had to come of, which is how and why the Bad Boy 1 number
plate got stuck on the poxy car in the first place. Which
was all explained to you at the time, so could you explain
to me please what the course of events were that ended up
with my car not being there for me to collect.
I know you told me that, that the owner had contacted you
and the car had gone. On their say so. Now I donít know if
you meant it was driven out of the yard or picked up by Lou
Lowder from the compound or was ordered to be destroyed by
the compound and as there is now a break down in
communication between myself and the previous owner of the
car and I am no longer in contact with this person. I do
feel that I deserve an explanation as to why I was not
informed of any discrepancy of the ownership of the vehicle
and that even though it was a piece of evidence in my case
it was removed from the Police Compound and never to be seen
again without any permission or even acknowledgement and
believe me itís only become an issue now that the Duster can
not be replaced or returned without a fuss. How fucking
gutted, am I? You know, donít ya, ha, ha, ha, ha? And as I
myself was the last one to search it with my son and
yourself present., before I was released from Trinity Police
Station we can safely assume that it wasnít in there, canít
we and I know 100 percent itís absolutely fuck all to do
with you. Honestly I do, or you wouldnít have let me look
for it myself before I left and I thank you for that, sir.
But that does leave us with the problem of what did actually
happen to it, doesnít it?
Now Iím not silly enough to believe that, Iím ever going to
see it again or that you will be able to find out what
actually happened to it, or in fact whoís got it. So my
dilemma now is?
Do I just pretend it never happened and say nothing further
about it and just let that happen to me (thatís a hard one)?
Or do I, kick up a big stink about it and try and get
publicity round it and go for compensation and all that
bollox of a Chriss Report. Even knowing the eventual outcome
will be ďitís gone, we ainít got it, so fuck offĒ and that,
more or less will be the outcome and I know it.
So as weíve been 100 percent straight with each other right
from the beginning. Iíd like your advice of, what to do
here? As Iím feeling like a prick, just letting my car get
confiscated off me and not given back and now the duster
going missing as well.
Iím sure you will understand my position as a man; you must
know how I feel. Iím gutted about it, and because the
service I got whilst staying over at your place was
excellent, second to none and everyone that had anything to
do with me and my case was very efficient and professional,
which Iíve said to you already. And, because I donít know
the names of who did go through my car, Iíve got to just
point the finger at everyone and I really donít mean it that
way at all. Know, what I mean?
Anyway, I have the names, addresses and date of births of
all the actors that was on set, the week we were in
Portsmouth at a place called Pounds Yard, in a place called
When we were blowing up Rolls Royceís and Mercedes and
shooting each other and were passing those dud bullets
around to every one that was in the gun fight and given to
us by the geezer doing the pyrotechnics and all that stuff.
If you would like two watch this film, itís called Hell 2
Pay and itís the absolute bollox, I tell ya! But you will be
able to see for yourself the bullets being used, if thatís
of any help to you. Itís worth a watch anyway and the gold
duster with the Diamonds is on my website and also in any of
the documentaryís Iíve been in. Iíll send you a copy of both
if you want, with all this other shit, if you need it? Or
just my DVDís, if you want, so you can see the Knuckle
Duster and should recognise it again. Just incase, anyone
should see it lying around anywhere, or if someone hands it
into the lost property or something.
I do hope you had a relaxing week away from the station and
have come back fully charged and refreshed. Say hi to the
rest of the team for me and Iíll see ya, on the 13th
Dave Courtney O.B.E.
