Jailed for sex act in his cell and spitting at an officer
POLICE were left with a £300 cleanup bill after a prisoner pleasured himself in a cell and defecated in a police station shower.
Reginald Roach was arrested on November 16 over another offence and was in custody at Caernarfon police station.
While being held, he defecated in the shower in the custody suite, forcing the police to have to bring in professional cleaners.
He also pleasured himself in a cell, meaning cleaners had to be brought in again, and urinated in one during the time he was being held at Llandudno magistrates court.
In total, the bill for cleaning up after him ran to more than £310.
Roach, of Market Street, Holyhead, had denied a charge of spitting at a custody officer but changed his plea just before he was due up before magistrates in Caernarfon last Friday morning.
The court heard Roach was also in breach of a conditional discharge imposed last March following an incident in Holyhead, when he was seen to approach the Labour party offices in Thomas Street with a tin of white paint which he threw at the building.
He was handed a four-week jail term for this incident, to be served concurrently with a 20-week jail sentence for damaging the cells and spitting at a custody officer.
Roach was also ordered to pay £115 victim surcharge but no order of costs or compensation was made.
