A man was fined $1000 dollars on Monday after he admitted he obstructed a police operation last Friday.
Vernon Emmanuel was walking along a street in Ovals when he saw police officers hiding beside a house.
The officers had sent someone to the house to call a wanted man.
The wanted man had reportedly been eluding police for some time and the officers were hoping to apprehend him once he came outside.
Prosecutors said everything was going according to plan until Emmanuel shouted “Police!” and alerted the suspect to the operation.
The suspect then fled the scene, eluding police again.
Emmauel admitted to Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh that he was being mischievous and was told to pay the fine in two weeks or spend six months at Her Majesty’s Prison.
