Man admits lying to police


A man admitted obstruction and lying to police officers.

Marcus Fox, 29, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court to the obstruction charge and giving officers “false or misleading” information in Pembroke on Monday.

Mr Fox, who lives in Pembroke, denied a charge that he resisted arrest. Details of the alleged offences were not given in court on Tuesday.

Magistrate Tyrone Chin adjourned the case until Wednesday so Mr Fox’s lawyer could be present and released the defendant on $1,000 bail.
