POLICE RECOVER $13K FLUTE MISSING FROM TAXI SINCE 2012


A $13,000 flute that went missing nearly a decade ago has been returned to its owner after police recovered it from a Boston music store, police said. According to Wtap, The flute was reported missing in 2012 after its owner left it in a taxi cab, according to Boston police. It had been a cold case until this February, when a worker at a Boston music store called with a tip. The worker told police that someone had come to the store with an expensive flute asking about its value. The employee took down the person’s contact information and took a photo of the flute and its serial number. The worker later realized it might be a flute that had been reported missing back in 2012.


Earlier in April, detectives spoke with the person who had visited the music store with the flute. The person said he had bought the instrument from an unknown person, and he turned it over to detectives, police said. But police said that they had determined that he was actually the driver of the taxi on that day in 2012. Police said they plan to bring a complaint against him in Boston Municipal Court.

MAY 2021


An uncle helped his niece save a sub- stantial amount of money in one day after he offered his ComfortDelGro taxi as a wedding day car instead of renting one. Mothership reports that the unusual transport arrangement on the day of matri- mony for one couple in Singapore was shared on Facebook by the taxi operator. The post said the bride, Syarinah Sani, was preparing for her wedding in March 2021, when her uncle, Abdul Aziz Bin Talibak, volunteered to lend his Comfort Ioniq taxi to the engaged couple to cut down on expenses. The taxi, the cab- bie felt, was still new and would be practical for the occasion. He said: “The taxi may not be a luxury car but it is only slightly over one year old, and still looks new.” But to let his idea come to fruition, he had to seek approval from the taxi operator. But the final say belonged to the Land Transport Authority, which had to give its permission. Even though this was likely the first time an idea like this was mooted, the approval came on the same day that evening. The grateful bride said she was more than happy to accept her uncle’s help: “I was very surprised and thankful when Uncle Aziz offered to let us use his taxi. “He even paid for the decoration out of his own pockets and made the taxi look so presentable on my big day.”
