Warrant Issued For Man's Arrest After Non-Attendance At Court Over Fly-tipping Charge

A warrant was today ordered to be issued by Luton Magistrates Court for a defendant resident in Houghton Regis. The defendant was due in court today but failed to appear.

The court heard from the prosecution that the allegation concerned depositing without a permit waste on land on August 25th last year. The prosecution said that the defendant had requested an 8-week adjournment as he had not been provided with sufficient evidence. The court heard that a series of email correspondence between the defendant and the Central Bedfordshire Council officer had taken place and CBC were opposed to an adjournment.

The court was further told that the defendant had admitted taking rubbish bags to Houghton Regis Town Council, and also admitted under interview that he had. The prosecution argued that the defendant needed to take things seriously and requested that a warrant be issued.

The bench agreed that a warrant not backed by bail should be ordered.
