Different minds – Solve The Crime?

Sherlock Holmes

I don’t have the sort of mind that retains information well.

Consequently, I am always impressed by people who can rattle off dates, names, car registrations and mobile phone numbers without any apparent effort.

My belief is that there are both advantages and disadvantages in being able to retaining things to memory.

I seem to have an enhanced ability to handle lots of different things (albeit it at a superficial level) with a good ability to judge what’s important and what isn’t.

When the lead was stolen from the school roof at Eling Infants school, it was just one of the subjects that I covered that particular week.

My public call for any useful information to be passed to the police didn’t go unheeded.

It was picked up by the local press and I have just had a call from a local resident who has a far better grasp of detail and memory than I could ever claim.

Having read the article in the Lymington Times, he could clearly remember seeing two vehicles and accompanying men acting “suspiciously” in the area around the time of the theft.

However, amazingly, he could even recall the registration number of one of the vehicles!

He has shared the descriptions and the registration number with the police. I really hope the police decide to follow this up.

From what he says, it seems very likely indeed that he witnessed those responsible.
