Worksop Lie Detector Tests identify Mystery Vandal

When a new resident moved into an East Midlands retirement community our client’s life was made a misery.  He booked two Worksop lie detector tests to resolve the problem.

Stanley’s Case

Stanley had lived happily in a quiet East Midlands retirement community for over 10 years. That changed when a new resident, Alfred, arrived.

For some reason Alfred took an instant dislike to Stanley. At the quarterly residents’ meeting that Stanley chaired, Alfred sneered at any suggestions that were put forward. As a former councillor, the residents had always looked to Stanley for guidance. Within a few months Alfred decided that he should chair the meetings and Stanley was surprised how quickly the residents agreed.


Some cars on the complex had been vandalised in the weeks preceding Alfred’s appointment and the residents thought that Stanley should have stopped it. Since the police hadn’t been able to, he wasn’t sure why they thought he could.

There were some cameras around the complex but none that overlooked the car park. Stanley suggested at one of the meetings that they club together and buy some. Alfred vetoed that saying that we couldn’t afford it. The equipment wouldn’t have cost more than a few hundred pounds but not enough residents wanted to chip in.

As time progressed, the other residents stopped dropping in for a coffee at Stanley’s. If he visited them, they didn’t invite him in. Initially they would still say “hello” in passing but then they stopped even doing that. They just looked away from him. He became miserable and lonely.

False allegations

At the next residents’ meeting, more cars had been damaged. One had a wing mirror ripped off, another had scratches along the sides and yet another was missing its windscreen wipers. Alfred pointed out that the only car not damaged since the vandalism began, was Stanley’s. It was said in an accusatory manner.  It occurred to Stanley that all the people in the room were convinced that he was the culprit.

Not being backward in coming forward, Stanley stood up and asked if that was what they thought.  There was some mumbling and then Alfred said that they did.  When Stanley asked what possible reason he could have for doing it, Alfred said that he was clearly seeking attention.  Wasn’t it him who had suggested putting up cameras to make himself look important?  There was absolutely no logic at all in what Alfred was saying yet the residents were supporting his nonsense.

It wasn’t normal for Stanley to lose his temper but he was enraged and walked out of the meeting. His home was only a couple of minutes from the meeting room and when he got inside he was shaking with rage. He poured himself a brandy and that gave him some inspiration. He returned to the meeting and said that he was prepared to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence. There was only one stipulation. Alfred had to take one too. He said that he would pay for them. How could Alfred refuse?

Worksop lie detector tests

Our East Midlands polygraph examiner arrived at the complex, following the two Worksop lie detector tests being booked online.  The meeting room wasn’t used very often during the day and provided an ideal environment for the tests.

Stanley’s test results showed no deception but Alfred’s were an entirely different story. He failed on all 3 questions he was asked regarding the vandalism to the cars.

At the next residents’ meeting it was decided that Alfred would pay for the damage he’d inflicted and compensate those who had already had repairs done. He would also find somewhere else to live. If he refused, the matter would be reported to the police.
