24 Hours in Police Custody (2014) s01e07 Episode Script

The Crime of the Century

1 Go, go, go, go.
Police! Police officers, stand still! Do you want to handcuff him for us? Contact, one upstairs! Everyone clear? All clear.
Before we do a search, is there any drugs here at all? Be a lot better if you tell us than we find it.
Not that I know of.
No? What about yourself? Once a suspect is in custody, the police have 24 hours to investigate and interview.
After that, it's either charge or release.
'You've been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.
' On suspicion of stalking.
-On suspicion of GBH.
Possession and making of indecent images of children.
'On suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
' Start explaining.
It's the police's job to ask what really happened.
Where were you on the 28th of March? It was not me, I was not there! That could have been 101 people, it's nothing to do with me.
Police! Open the door now! MAN YELLS Who's innocent? Who's guilty? Why would Pete say you assaulted him? Because he's deluded, he's a drunk.
Well, that's nonsense.
-Police! Show me your hands! From the streets to the interrogation rooms Where's the knife? Did you have a knife? He made a specific threat that he is going to kill her.
.
.
from the suspects to the head of CID That's one hell of a shirt, David.
I'm loving it.
ALARM BLARES .
.
these are the men and women who have just 24 hours to find the evidence.
I'm not letting him get away with it.
I want him nicked and charged.
If it kicks off, I'm out the door.
WOMAN SCREAMS I'm a lover, not a fighter.
Will they discover it before time runs out? Ahh! Good news.
Yeah.
Got him.
CELL DOOR SLAMS Police have arrested Ervin Shehi, a 25-year-old Albanian.
He's suspected of being an illegal immigrant.
Dispatch the asset.
He was arrested following a drugs raid.
This the immigration? It is, yes.
No drugs were found, but police seized a computer and a phone.
Hello, mate, all right? English? Good.
What I'm going to do, we're going to be making some inquiries on this phone and further arresting you for possibly handling stolen goods.
Listen to me, listen to me, it doesn't mean you're actually guilty of it, but if we can run some checks on this we can find out very quickly.
You are not going to take my phone.
I pay money for that, I am not going to give you that one.
Well, you might not have a choice.
He say tell me a price, I say If you think they're stolen, then I'm going to authorise your detention here, so we can conduct an interview in relation to the matter, phones or tablets or whatever.
And obviously bottom out this immigration matter as well, but that'll be done by the Immigration Service, they'll come to the police station and interview you as well.
Do you want to see a drugs worker, alcohol worker? If you want.
No, do you want to see one? I don't care.
Well, if you're an alcoholic or a drug addict I'm not alcoholic.
OK, so, is there any reason? No, why you ask me if I want an alcohol doctor? I don't know.
Well, I'm asking if you want one.
No.
Have you got any specific or religious dietary needs? Any foods you can't eat? No.
Only spinach I don't eat.
Spinach? We don't have spinach in custody.
I don't think our food has spinach in it.
OFFICER LAUGHS You're here for what we call a recordable offence, so we're going to have to take your fingerprints.
OK, do you give us your permission to take them? If I don't give, what's going to happen? We're going to take it anyway, basically.
-So what's the point to ask? Cos we ask.
It's nice, isn't it? Not down to me, is it? Bullet holes, probably.
Democracy.
Ervin Shehi's case will be dealt with by one of the busiest departments in the station - the prisoner handling unit, or PHU.
Is there any way you can describe what PHU is and what it does? Unrelenting carnage.
The prisoner handling unit is a team of officers and civilian members of staff that deal with high-volume, low-impact crime.
We're the bottom of the pile, PHU.
We get all the jobs people are too busy to deal with or don't want.
We get frauds, drugs, domestic incidents, thefts, burglaries brothels.
Yeah, you name it, we get all kinds of bits and pieces.
I don't mean that it's not important in any way, shape or form, it's just crimes that are There's just so many of them.
I've still got to sort out his stuff, I've still got to sort out his stuff, I've still got to sort out her stuff I'm really concerned about this guy, if I'm honest.
PHU deal with an average of 20 cases a day, some very serious, others that can be quickly dealt with.
Hello.
Hello, mate.
OK, this is the crime of the literal century.
Is it? Wow.
This is the most serious thing I think has come into this office EVER.
I don't know if I want the responsibility.
I don't know if you can handle the responsibility.
Don't think I can, mate, no.
Because I think we're talking about a grand total of98p.
Genuinely 98p? -Well, two cans of Diet Coke, how much is a can of Diet Coke? Fuck off! Come on.
I have done nothing wrong tonight, and you lot think you've got the power, the audacity, to put me in a fucking place.
For each case, Will Taylor must choose an officer to interview the suspect, before deciding on the next steps.
Mm-hmm? Basically the victims are having a house party, the two of them, they see this woman at the window, she opens the window a little bit further and says, "Can I come in?" They tell her no, so she slams the window shut twice, causing it to break.
Oh.
Officers then turn up and arrest her, she gets violent, she's assaulted the two police officers.
RECORDING MACHINE BLEEPS The officers asked you what happened, and you said, "It wasn't me, haven't done anything.
"You're going to have to fucking gas me "because I ain't coming quietly, haven't done anything.
"I'm going to come back and fuck you up.
" SUSPECT SNIFFS Does that ring any bells? "When did you last wash? I bet you're a lesbian.
"A fishy, smelly lesbian.
" Fairly easy job.
He was the one that turned round and said, "I didn't even realise "the bus was stolen and it said 'private hire' on the back.
" Yeah, yeah.
Investigating officer Gill Cook-Smith has been assigned the case of two stolen buses.
I think it was probably about one or two in the morning, an officer found the bus in Dunstable, it was parked at the side of the road.
So he's pulled up behind it and the bus has started off again.
So he's followed the bus behind, so as not to freak them out.
Basically the bus has gone all the way through Dunstable, all the way down the A5 towards junction 9 of the M1, being driven perfectly, within the speed limit, couldn't fault the driving whatsoever.
The bus stopped in a village, I believe it was Eaton Bray, and suddenly you see all these shadowy figures.
Seven or eight drunken males got on the bus.
They didn't believe it wasn't a real bus and they wanted taken to Hemel.
And he's driven the bus all the way to Hemel, he's dropped them off, they've then driven back to Dunstable.
Obviously our officers were aware of this.
They were parked round the corner.
The police car was able to stop in front of it, and obviously that's when officers got out and jumped on the bus.
Luke.
You all right? Wanna come through? Luke is suspected of being involved in both bus thefts.
Do you want to just stand there for me? You're back on bail, yeah? Yeah.
OK.
It's the bus boys, the stolen bus.
Two other buses they've stolen and the CCTV shows him on the second bus.
Right, if I can get you to sit in that one, Luke.
All right, we'll just wait for this to warm up.
So, just to recap, you said you didn't know it was a stolen bus because on the back of the bus it said "private hire", and you didn't realise it was stolen, you didn't really think about the fact it was one or two in the morning and Daniel's driving around on a bus.
Yeah.
That's cos of my problems, obviously with ADHD, I didn't clock on as quick as I normally would.
OK.
Now then, is this the only time you've been on a bus that has been stolen? As far as I know, yeah.
OK, can you tell me anything about a bus that was stolen on the 13th of February this year? Erm I can't remember.
OK.
I honestly can't remember.
Don't think I was even out.
Now then, there is CCTV on that bus, so we've actually got that CCTV.
Yeah.
So what I've done is produce some stills.
Who's that person? Yeah, that's me.
That is definitely me, I know now.
OK, can you remember being on this bus now? I do remember now, yeah.
Now, erm It's just I had to see an image, obviously.
No, no, that's fine.
Was you with him when he actually stole that bus? Eh I actually can't remember that.
Obviously if there's images, I can tell you straight off, but I can't remember straight off like that.
If there's images, I'd openly admit it.
I can't if there's no images.
But you was definitely on the bus? Yeah.
It was privately hired, again, that's the thing.
He keeps putting on "privately hired.
" OK, have you got anything else you want to tell me before we stop the interview? No, not as far as I know, no.
All right, so I'm going to stop the interview.
Can I go prison? No! So I hope you're not going to get on a bus with I haven't been on a bus since.
Daniel, and the only time you'll get on a bus is if you've got a little man, he's got a little cap I haven't been on a bus since.
and he's wearing a uniform.
Been a learning curve.
Big learning curve.
Not to get myself in trouble.
What have they said? Just cautioned me, that's it.
I'm happy with the caution though.
I'm over the moon with the caution.
Police are preparing to raid a local massage parlour.
They believe it's operating as a brothel.
Right, then, boys and girls, what we're going to do is execute a warrant today under Section 15 of PACE.
The information that we have is that there's a brothel at the Paradise Sauna Club, if you guys are aware of it.
LAUGHTER Strictly professional.
We've received a lot of complaints from neighbouring residents because of loud noise, music, shouting and also suspected female prostitutes seen arriving round about nine or ten in the evening.
The main aim of today is to identify and arrest the madam for the offence of managing a brothel.
In the UK, selling sex is legal, but owning or managing a brothel is not.
Should they make any arrests, it will be another case for Wil's team in PHU.
We've got a warrant that's been issued by the magistrate's court.
We're going to be searching today under Section 33 of the Sexual Offences Act.
We suspect this premises to be a brothel.
Just all move around, make sure that all the rooms are covered.
Magic.
INDISTINCT CONVERSATION Did you catch them with clothes on or off? No, sitting on the couch having a drink.
-Is that your address? INDISTINCT CONVERSATION 'On any investigation involving a brothel, ' there are various factors that have to be considered and one of the main ones is whether the people working in there have been exploited and as part of that, been trafficked.
'The people managing that brothel might very well have been 'those who have been directly involved in that exploitation 'and that's why that's a far more serious offence 'and one we'd be far more interested in investigating.
' It's unclear whether any of the women is running the suspected brothel.
Police arrest all three in the hope that more will be revealed in interview.
They're from Lithuania, Albania and the UK.
Ladies See you guys in a bit.
See you later.
Which one's your bag? This one? Forefinger.
That's right.
Just press it down.
That's fine.
They're not on tight, are they? 'That brothel is not just a stand-alone brothel on its own.
' There is a chain, as with all of these things, much like drug dealers and everything else.
There'll be a chain that'll lead up to somebody who organises it and owns that brothel.
OK, do you want to come up, please? And the offence? Managing a brothel.
Hmm! I am not the manager of any brothel! OK.
There's no reason to No, I'm pissed off, because I'm not the manager of no brothel.
I understand your No.
I'm not happy.
At least arrest me for whatever.
"Maybe I think you're doing such and such", but I'm not no manager of anywhere.
Are you going to let me? I opened the gate, I wasn't even supposed to open the gate, cos the receptionist lady who takes I'll explain to you.
.
.
who takes the money I know, but you'll have your opportunity to speak in an interview.
Very, very pissed off.
I don't appreciate being arrested as the manager of a brothel.
Have you finished? Yeah.
OK.
You've got lipstick all on your front teeth.
SPEECH MUFFLED OK, do you understand why you've been arrested? Of course I understood, yes.
OK, so I'm going to authorise your detention That's fine.
.
.
so that you can be interviewed and that gives you the opportunity to give your explanation, OK? Yeah, fine.
Police have obtained a witness statement from a student living next door to the massage parlour.
"On a regular basis, I actually hear people having sex.
"Then I feel the wall shaking and hear rhythmic banging.
"At the same time, I hear a female voice "grunting and moaning and groaning.
"I hear the male voice also groaning.
"Once I heard a clearly female voice say, 'Oh, that was good.
' "It's really not nice to hear the sex noises.
"The noise keeps me awake through the night "and leaves me really tired during the day "when I have to attend lectures.
" And that's it.
You should see some action very soon.
Nice.
Baby powder.
Wil Taylor has assigned the case to PC Kat Allison.
An offence of keeping a brothel in 2011! This one's got a caution in 2006 for managing or assisting in the management of a brothel.
I take it we have an exhibiting statement for the photographs.
It is all lumped together as one statement.
So that's one exhibit? Pretty much.
OK.
Erm, yeah, all right.
Let me read through everything.
If I've got any questions, I'll come back to you, mate.
The first lady in M10, she's been arrested for managing a brothel.
They've arrested her for managing cos she had the keys to the premises and she kind of opened up all the doors to let the officers in.
She's got the right hump at being arrested, cos she just says she rents a room and she does masseur mass massaging, so she's a bit LAUGHTER belligerent.
And the other two have been arrested for assisting in managing, cos both of them were on the telephone taking bookings as they went in with a warrant.
M6, she's got no medical, no mental health.
The only thing she has is four months ago, she self-harmed.
She's got some very light cut marks to her arm where she's gone up with a sharp implement, but she hasn't done anything since, so she's got ideations of self-harm while she's here.
Number 11, she may want a phone call this morning.
She has a son being looked after by a friend, so she'll probably need to call them to say she won't come home tonight.
Hello? I think we've got the phones and I think that's all we've got.
OK.
Um From my perspective, once those people are in custody, if you're going to do a job, you do it properly, and that means investigating it thoroughly and looking at all the available opportunities there are to gain evidence.
You've got to prove that that person is managing and organising that brothel.
PC Kat Allison first needs the women to admit to selling sex.
She must then try to work out if any of them is the brothel's madam.
Right, you've been arrested on suspicion of management of a brothel.
.
.
on suspicion of assisting in management of a brothel.
Do you understand what it is that you've been arrested for? What's your job there? I do massage.
Tell me what you do in your job.
Massage people.
Massage the Sorry.
LAUGHTER Yeah.
Massage people.
And if you were doing a massage, how would you touch that person? So with? With fingers.
I don't know how to LAUGHTER We've got cameras, we'll act it.
Erm INTERVIEWER: Do you think anyone's ever been to a massage parlour for a massage? No.
Don't think anybody's ever confused a massage parlour with anything else but a brothel.
PC ALLISON: How much is your fee? ?40 for 20 minutes and ?50-?60 for half an hour.
Can I just ask you, what is your clientele? Who comes to have massages? -A lot of them is Asians.
Male, female? Male.
Do you normally just use the same room? Do you ever get asked by any of your clients to provide more than a normal massage? Oh, of course.
And how do you respond? And I say, "No chance.
"No way.
" It's not something I do.
'We're not really after the people who are working there.
' Fundamentally, we need to look to protect them in some way, shape or form.
'The kind of hidden danger, almost, of brothels 'is that not everybody who's working there is working voluntarily 'and that needs to be identified.
' PC ALLISON: We've also got a sign that just says, "20 minute massage and one personal service - ?30.
"30 minute massage and full personal service - ?40.
" Have you seen those signs anywhere? Yeah, I see them behind the doors.
They've been there a long time, actually, before I got there.
So you don't know what they refer to when they mention "personal service"? No, no, no.
Can you just tell me what this is here? That looks like condoms.
Is that normal for you to carry those around? Sometimes I might have a couple in my bag because sometimes I do say, "Can you put this on?" Do you take a bag to work? So it's normally for you to carry condoms around with you? Yeah.
Do you use them at work? What would the client want that you would need to use a condom for? So I'm just going to clarify that - if the client asks you for sex Yeah.
.
.
do you provide sex for that client? You do? Yeah.
And how many times a night would a client ask you for sex? Three times, four times.
Is that different people or the same? Different people.
Are you OK? I've just never done this before.
CRYING: I can't.
SHE CRIES I don't know, just, I can't.
I can't do it.
It's so difficult for me and I can't even listen and I don't know Just, I can't.
I don't suppose, what you saw downstairs, I don't suppose that the lady's underwear was seized at all? No.
No.
The condoms weren't seized? No.
The cash that was seized, what did they say about that? I didn't ask them about it.
OK.
INTERVIEWER: And how did you become a police officer, Wil? 'I was at university studying law.
' I was coming home from the student union, I'd had far too much to drink, I had no money in my pocket, luckily, and I had these three lads just approach me.
One of them asked me if I had a light and all of a sudden, they all had knives out.
'They searched me, took my bank cards in the end and off they wandered.
' I literally walked down the road and there was this cop car and I flagged it down and said, "Look, I'm really sorry to bother you, "but I've just had these three lads just take my wallet.
" They got me in the back of the car and they raced on down the road and there they were, going through their ill-gotten gains.
They all legged it.
They all got chased and they all got caught, which for me was massively exciting.
That was it - that's all I wanted to do from that point on, wanted to be a police officer.
14th January 2007.
I was driving along a winding road and yeah, driver error.
I swerved to avoid a rabbit on a double S bend, ended up losing control of the car, spinning and going sideways into a tree.
And yeah, that was it.
When I collided with the tree, it pretty much completely took my right leg off straightaway and the metal from the car stripped all the skin and most of the flesh from my left leg.
The response time from the fire brigade was excellent.
They were there very quickly, as were the police.
Unfortunately, it still took about three hours to get me out the car, because of the way I was trapped in it.
The next day, I had my right leg completely amputated and then a couple of days later, they were worried because the septicaemia from the left leg had caused my heart to stop three times, so they then removed my left leg.
I remember waking up and I remember my feet were absolutely killing me and I remember saying to the nurse, "My feet are so sore, is there anything you can do about it?" She said, "No, I'm sorry, Wil, you've got no legs.
" I just remember lifting up the blanket and there were these bandaged stumps staring back at me.
It was just like, "Wow.
" I remember saying to myself, "There's one of two ways to deal with this - "you show up and you put up and you just get on with your life "or you sit there and you feel sorry for yourself "and cry yourself to sleep every night" and I was like, "I'm not doing that.
" I came back to work six months later to the day.
Bedfordshire Police have been fantastic.
The Chief Constable, she came to see me in hospital and said, "Don't worry about that, we will try find a role for you.
" That was great.
That's so romantic - "I only went round to give her some chocolates and beer.
" Chocolate and beer - cans of Stella and a box of Maltesers.
A box of Maltesers and cans of Stella lager.
I mean, wow.
Welcome to Luton, ladies and gentlemen! It's as classy as it gets.
SIREN WAILS Illegal overstayer Ervin Shehi is waiting for immigration officers to arrive at the station.
It's quite a nice day out there, innit? Yeah.
Thing is, though, it's meant to get worse, innit, on our weekend off.
Sunday it's supposed to rain, isn't it? Did you keep his immigration paperwork out, John? It's in that blue folder.
HE WHISTLES TRANSLATION Shehi is also being investigated for handling stolen goods.
So why did they? They went there for a drugs warrant Yeah.
So why have the nicked him for handling stolen goods? They originally nicked him for immigration Right.
Then I think they've seen his goods, and he's said that he's bought 'em, and they've basically said, "We don't believe you", and they've nicked him.
# Just like a prayer You know I'll take you there.
Yeah.
Can you whistle? Can you whistle? No.
Cos you can't sing.
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Meow, Sergeant.
He's got claws over there, I tell you! Right.
I won't be long in this interview at all.
He says Sergeant, wish me luck, cos I can't have another NFA on my hands.
Right, see what he's got to say for himself, young man.
You were arrested originally for immigration purposes.
Yeah.
You were brought here and then further arrested for handling stolen goods.
So, my first question to you, then, Ervin, is are you responsible for handling stolen goods via the BlackBerry and Samsung? The BlackBerry I bought in the shop in CeX, you know, it is a game shop in Luton Mall? Mm-hm.
So - and the tablet I bought there for 75 quid.
OK, that's fine.
Yeah.
We'll talk about the second exhibit What's this? -That for the moment, it's mine, because I bought from the owner of the house.
Bought it from the owner of what house? The house where I was living before.
I don't know if, the phone, it's stolen, or found it - but I paid money for that.
I want the phone back.
Or give the money back.
OK, what we'll do, then - I'll stop the interview now Yes.
.
.
and I'll switch off the recording device.
Thank you.
What's happening with your immigration status? What's going on? Do you want to go back? No, mate.
OK.
Is it not very good? It's not very good.
Could you not get a visa here, then? It's very hard.
Mm.
Lovely.
I'll pop you back in, then, with immigration, and I'll have a chat with my sergeant about what we've spoken about.
Come on, we'll go to immigration.
Yeah.
OK, I don't know what's going to happen.
You make sure they recorded what I say to him, or I'm going to.
I need to.
When I started doing patrol work, I couldn't have been happier - I really enjoyed every aspect of the control work.
You know I loved foot chases and car chases and grabbing bad guys, you know? There is something really satisfying about that.
You speak to some people an they'll tell you, I wasn't so good at the paperwork side of things, but I was very good at the chasing after people! Um and then, yeah, the accident - I couldn't do that any more.
One of them had got ?100 on and of them got ?100 on, other one had got 90, and that money was found tucked away in the loft.
Er, if you look at the prices Um ?50 and ?40, it gives you a nice little ?90 Mm.
.
.
and then ?50 and ?50 gives you a nice little ?100.
Despite lengthy interviews, there's still insufficient evidence to charge any of the women as the madam.
But Wil Taylor is keen to push the case forward.
Um, the first thing I think we're going to have to do is you're going to have to do a quick re-interview.
Have you ever done handwriting samples before? Yeah.
And the reason for that is to check those handwriting samples, then, against those notes.
So, if they're saying that they are just masseuses, then why would they be writing that? All those prices or the rota.
Mm.
In my job now, as sergeant, I'm now becoming a practitioner of law again.
I rediscovered my love of the law.
And that's going to have to be fingerprinted, as well, against those three.
Right.
I understand there's a photocopy of a passport.
Have we checked the details in relation to that passport? OK.
Before they're bailed, I would suggest we put a quick phone call in to Special Branch to see if there's anything of interest, any unusual activity on that passport - reported lost, stolen, the usual kind of stuff.
The hardest part of working in PHU, I find, is the demands that are placed on the people I manage, and they're the ones that I feel most sorry for.
Did any of them accept for DB1 and DB2, which were the two mobile phones? We didn't even ask about it, no.
Right, OK, fine.
I'm the one who's then giving them more jobs, I'm the one telling them I need more work down on this - you know, there's no let-up.
In relation to the cash that we seized, what did they say about that? We didn't ask them about it.
OK.
I understand that, cos there is a lot there.
However, we're going to have to do some follow-up questions.
The handwriting samples is the key thing.
That's the main point of the interview, is to get the handwriting samples.
OK.
Police work is very A little bit is about chasing after people, and a lot of actually just doing the paperwork.
But the highlight is always, always going to be charging somebody.
There is no better feeling than knowing your investigation has led to that that end.
Wil Taylor believes handwriting samples could lead to a charge.
But, because of the cost, the duty inspector is questioning the decision.
The handwriting samples, remind me, why do we need handwriting samples? Is that because of a book that's being kept, or? There's two things, isn't there? That List of clients .
.
and that.
Oh, a rota.
What girls are working.
SHE SIGHS I just think handwriting samples are quite expensive.
If you're going to take a sample and then compare it, that comparison's quite expensive, and it doesn't actually prove it.
I disagree, because if they're not involved in the offence, then they shouldn't be needing to write out adverts How do you prove that that person's handwriting is linked, is the same as that handwriting? It stands up in court all the time, and it's been used in murder inquiries quite regularly, so I think it's worth considering that if the super is to say - or the somebody else, a budget holder goes, "It's not" Sorry, "It's too expensive" So, so OK.
You've got it.
I'm stepping out of it.
OK.
You make your own So If you have an issue with my decision-making, speak to me about it, and I will explain to you why it's important, because I know what I'm talking about.
I'm not sure if they want to I am so angry, my hands are shaking.
Yes, please.
Finance is always going to come into it.
If you've got the money to throw at something, your investigation is always going to be better off.
If you can't, and for some reason that approval isn't granted to carry out that line of inquiry, you've lost a bit of evidence.
Which never helps.
So, yeah, it's always frustrating when that happens.
Wil Taylor's instructed PC Kat Alison to proceed with handwriting samples in the hope that resources will be found later to analyse them.
OK? I've got your lasagne and she's got your tea.
Since we spoke to you earlier, a few other bits and pieces have come to light that we need to put to you.
Mm.
One of the things that I would like from you is a handwriting sample.
What I'd like you to write down, in your normal handwriting Yeah.
Is the phrase, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
" And what I'd like you to do underneath that is do a pound sign and write the numbers through from one to ten.
OK, er Say that again? "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
" Please sign on the pad there.
All three women are bailed pending further investigation.
Hello.
Is Ervin still in the room? He's got some good and bad news.
Ervin, you OK? You're getting these back, OK? Sign there.
So you're taking them home with you, or wherever you're going.
