Louth woman in court after interfering with police investigation


A 44-year-old Louth woman, who interfered with police as they were investigating suspected drugs possession by members of her family has appeared before magistrates at Skegness.

Elouize Ann Stevens of Freer Gardens, admitted using threatening or abusive words and behaviour likely to cause alarm or harassment on July 25 in Monks Dyke Road in Louth.

Nick Todd, prosecuting, said that at 6.30pm police stopped two males, one of whom was Stevens’ son, and one was found to be in possession of drugs.

They also stopped Stevens’ partner and father but when she became involved and was abusive towards them, they had to arrest her after she ignored warnings to go away.

Stevens told the court that she was ‘terribly sorry how it had ended up’ but said she had been ‘very aggravated’.

She was given a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £50 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
