Woman made series of false 999 calls

Have your say

When she was drunk a Lurgan woman made false 999 calls claiming she had been stabbed and attacked, Craigavon Magistrates Court heard last Friday.

Sharon Adams (43), Toberhewny Hall, admitted resisting a constable, making a call causing annoyance and needless anxiety and sending a false message on August 21 this year.

She was put on probation for 18 months with the condition she attends an alcohol or drug counselling programme.

She was given a conditional discharge for three years for sending a false message on July 14 and making a call for the purpose of causing annoyance on August 6.

The court heard that on July 14 she made 11 calls to the emergency line from 12.18am until 3.05am. A solicitor for Adams said she was on medication now to help her abstain from taking alcohol.
