After a lot of fluffing around Kadie took me into town to the Central Police station to report the theft. We went straight to CID since she new someone who worked there and that way we could avoid having to pay any bribes. Unfortunately as I ran to catch a taxi I managed to trip over my own shoe laces and ended up plummeting face first into the grimy, grosso bitumen and grazed my hands and knee...
Before we even reached the office I hear someone calling my name, out of the blue pops one of the random men who stopped me on the street last week who wanted to talk to me about 'something important' and wouldn't go away until he had given me his number. After leading us into the detectives office it turned out that this guy was actually a CID Detective and he continued to request special time with me and tell me how deeply he loved me. The second cop we met immediately told me I had to take him to Australia with him, that he was 33 and I was 23 and that would make a perfect match and he gave me his number and address so that I could back to him within the week to sort out the details
On viewing the 'crime scene' the mobile phone expert was saying that they needed to take photos, which I was hesitant about cos it would basically mean that I would need to pay for a photographer to come and take some photos of the foot of my bed, and I seriously don't expect any of my gear to appear ever again. So I managed to avoid that.
Later today I went back to the office to submit my statement, so now I can rest easy over the weekend in the knowledge that the Sierra Leonean Police Force is hot on the heals of the dudes who stole my gear...All in all it was one of those fantastic wacky Sierra Leonean days ! ;0)
