Caller in custody
A YOUNG woman who made numerous hoax calls to emergency services and sent abusive messages to police has been remanded in custody.
Elizabeth Gibson, who was living in the Camaghael area of Fort William, phoned 999 up to 10 times a day in August this year and sent officers social media messages, calling them offensive names and telling one he was ‘s*** at his job’, Fort William sheriff court heard on Tuesday. The 18-year- old pleaded guilty to the charges at a previous hearing but sentencing was deferred until this week for a psychiatric report, which was still not available on Tuesday. Sheriff Richard Davidson deferred sentencing again until October 13 and remanded Gibson in custody until then. He said: ‘ This behaviour is patently not normal.’
