We were contacted last week by Mrs Jones about a potential Theft in London, she had lost her mother’s diamond ring, she was hoping it had been mislaid but had searched the house.
She explained her son had a history of stealing however for the last few years had been good, and has held down a job and is doing well, however due to his past history she wanted him to take a lie detector test for theft of the ring. For us this is a great test to run, allowing us to achieve maximum accuracy on a single issue test, it’s very black and white, you either stole the ring or not.
As with all theft cases we like initially the person you want to test to be informed, over twenty-five percent of our theft cases never go ahead. A guilty person will often agree to take a lie detector test and then back out at the last minute. So it’s only right that you use the threat of a polygraph test to try and get either a confession or the stolen goods back.
In this case the son was happy to take a lie detector test for the missing ring to put his mother’s mind at rest. It was booked for Friday night as we do evening appointments at out Maidstone HQ so time off work isn’t needed.
I arrived at the office in good time to prepare for the test and I received the following text message from Mrs Jones
A great result without needing a lie detector test, it can’t have been easy for the son to own up so you have to respect that, the main thing is Mrs Jones getting her mother’s diamond ring back, a very sentimental piece of jewellery. A good result for the theft in London.
If you have been a victim of theft, or even been accused of stealing and need to prove your innocence get in touch today and discuss your case with a qualified polygraph examiner and find out why Lie Detectors UK has been voted no1.Read More
