The vehicle was seized. 

It has since been examined by Crime Scene Investigators (CSI) for fingerprints and has been returned to its owner. 

At about 11am yesterday, another team of officers, including Cpl Baptiste, PC Alleyne, and PC Ramsaroop, were conducting patrols when they received intelligence that led them back to Ninth Storey. 

Here, the officers found and seized a White Wingroad, which had been registered as a taxi.

In both reports, the rear window of the vehicle had been broken, and the ignition had been tampered with.
