Dundee man, 21, falsely told cop that he had been threatened at gunpoint

Dundee police headquarters

A man who falsely claimed to police that he had been threatened at gunpoint has been fined at Dundee’s JP court for wasting police time.

Josh Mills, of Ballindean Place, admitted that on August 2, at police headquarters in West Bell Street, he falsely represented to PC Gareth Jennings that he had been threatened at gunpoint regarding a drugs debt.

This caused officers to devote their time and services to investigating the allegation, which Mills knew to be false, temporarily depriving the public of their services and rendering the lieges liable to suspicion and accusation of firearms offences and extortion. The 21-year-old was fined £300.
