DETECTIVE Constable Morvin Ellis received what he considers the best birthday present, with the breakthrough of the widely-publicised baby-snatching case.

Tuesday, February 5, was the policeman’s birthday.

The Kingston Western Police Division detective had plans for his birthday but they quickly disappeared when he was summoned to the Registrar General’s Department in Twickenham Park, St Catherine.

The detective constable told the Jamaica Observerlast Thursday that when he was informed that a woman turned up at the facility and was unable to provide the necessary information for registration, Ellis said he knew he had got a breakthrough in the case.

“When a case that you have invest so much time and effort into come to such a breakthrough, you tend to forget about your birthday plans. It was my birthday present,” “Detective Constable Ellis explained.

The baby was snatched from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital (VJH) on January 9. At the time, the 41-year-old mother told the Sunday Observer that approximately 5:00 am she was awakened after having a heavy flow of lochia. Not wanting to wake the mother who was immediately beside her, she said she trusted a woman clad in a denim skirt and a multi-coloured top, who had been standing and looking through the window and who offered to watch her baby while she went to the bathroom.

However, Whyte said that when she returned from her shower, only the baby’s hat was left on the bed.

On Tuesday, officials at the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) in Twickenham Park, St Catherine, detained a woman who had gone there with a baby with the intention of having the infant registered.

That same day, Whyte and her common-law husband, Sinclair Hutton, were asked by the Kingston Western Police to do a DNA test to determine whether or not the baby taken from the woman was theirs.

On Wednesday, a DNA test confirmed that the baby boy is the same child who was taken from the VJH last month.

The detective constable was lauded by his senior colleagues as the investigator who broke the ice. They said his love for his job was instrumental in finding the baby.

With four years experience as a detective under his belt, the seemingly humble constable who has been a serving member of the Jamaica Constabulary Force for almost seven years said it was his first publicised case.

Father of the missing baby, Sinclair Hutton, who was obviously pleased with the level of communication and assurance, could not keep the young detective’s name from his mouth.

For his common-law wife Suzzett Whyte, it was the same.

“Even when I feel like to give up, Ellis always a tell me say don’t give up. Sometimes me say you a tell me that to make me feel good. Him always encourage me all when me doubt him. Me always a ask him questions … a bother him. Sometimes me ask him if me a bother him because me feel like mi was a bother to him and him say ‘no’. Him deh on WhatsApp and me always message him, “ the delighted mother said after she was reunited with her second son on Friday.

Inspector Phillip Dodd told the Sunday Observer on Friday that he could not have asked for a better detective to work with.

“He’s one of my best detective constables. He’s one of the constables who thinks outside of the box. He’s not one of the regular police… and of such I chose him to assist with the investigation when this matter was reported to us and this is the end result, “ Inspector Dodd stated.

Noting that Ellis needs little or no supervision, Dodd said Ellis understands investigations and he takes the time to prepare his cases.

“If I am in this division for the next five years, I would want him to be my lieutenant,” Dodd reasoned.
