Caller in cus­tody

The Oban Times - - News -

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.’
