A Hemel Hempstead woman who made a 999 call to police to say she had seen a female being dragged screaming into a property in the town was making it up, a court heard this week.
In the call made on a March morning this year, Emma Davies also claimed people were inside the address arguing about cocaine.
Police responded to the call by going there and after forcing entry found no one was inside.
As a result, 42-year-old Davies was spoken to and admitted she had made it all up.
On August 25, Davies of Westerdale in Hemel Hempstead appeared at St Albans crown court to admit perverting the course of justice.
Prosecutor Ali Dewji told the court the phone call to the police at 3.59am on the morning of March 6 this year came after Davies had become “fixated” with the man.
In the weeks leading up to the calls she had posted notes through his letter box and even listened to his conversation on his doorstep of his property with the aid of an app on her phone which linked up to his doorbell.
Mr Dewji said the 999 caller hadn’t given her name to the police, but officers suspected Davies might be the culprit from the notes they discovered pushed through the man’s letter box.
Nicholas Evans defending said Davies wished to apologise for what had happened and was now embarrassed by her behaviour.
He sentenced her to two months imprisonment which was suspended for 12 months.
In addition, she was given a six month home curfew, she will have to be at home between 8pm and 6am.
