Glasgow Private Investigator Case Study

Private Investigator Case Study: Surveillance of the ex-wife

Location: Glasgow

What we did

Our private investigators in Glasgow were hired by a recently divorced man who was worried about the safety of his ex-wife and children. His ex-wife had gotten into a relationship with a new man, and the ex-husband wanted to make sure that his children and ex-wife were safe around the new partner. He had his misgivings, and wanted to ensure their safety. The new partner had moved the ex-wife and her children into a large property located on a traveller park in East Kilbride, on the outskirts of Glasgow. The new partner owned the park, but was a member of a well-known local crime family. Understandably, the ex-husband was worried, and turned to us for help.

How we did it

We had three highly trained operatives working 12-hour days on this case. On the third day, they noticed a white BMW that seemed to be following them. They realised they had been found out by members of the crime family and were flagged. The people in the white BMW followed them through the streets of Glasgow and confronted our operatives at some traffic lights. The police were quickly called and the situation was resolved before it escalated and any violence could take place.

The results

This case resulted in a successful outcome: our operatives had collected enough evidence to prove that the children were in harm’s way when around the new partner. The client went through the courts using the evidence we compiled to claim custody of his children on the grounds that they were in an unsafe environment.
