Dog owner fined after park fouling.
Cy Natabus of Blackacre Road, Dudley, has a PS665 court bill following the offence in Buffery Park last September.
At a hearing on April 4, which Natabus failed to attend, Dudley magistrates heard how the offender had been seen allowing his dog to foul in the park by a council officer.
When approached, Natabus gave a false name but later enquiries allowed officers to trace him to his address. He was then issued with a fine which he failed to pay so a court prosecution was carried out. He was convicted in his absence, fined PS350, ordered to pay costs of PS295 and a PS20 victim surcharge.
Environment chief Coun Tracy Wood said: "It shouldn't be too much to ask for people to clear up after their dogs and this prosecution shows there is no hiding place."
