Woman sentenced for making 96 nuisance calls to emergency services

A 55-year-old Haverfordwest woman has appeared before town magistrates after making 96 calls to the emergency services over a three month period.

Sian Davies made the calls to both the ambulance service and the police, claiming that she had been injured and also that she was going to jump off her balcony.

“She repeatedly made these calls,” Crown Prosecutor Kelly Rivers told Haverfordwest magistrates court earlier this week.

“She rang the ambulance service saying that she’d been injured but when the officers attended her home they found that she was heavily intoxicated and had no injuries.”

Ms Rivers went on to say that Davies, of Harrier Road, Haverfordwest, also made repeated calls to the police, including one informing them that she intended jumping off the balcony at her home.

Davies pleaded guilty to a charge of persistently using a public communication network to cause annoyance, inconvenience or anxiety between January 5 and April 13, 2023.

She was represented in court by Mr Tom Lloyd.

“These calls were not made maliciously, but because there were genuine issues,” he said.

“Since these incidents, my client hasn’t consumed alcohol and has given her mobile phone to her daughter so she can no longer make these calls. These are two very important steps in helping her to address her behaviour.”

For the offence, Davies was fined £80 and ordered to pay £85 costs and a £32 court surcharge.
