Woman breaches bail on stalking charges

UPDATE 4PM: A woman charged in connection with the recent Greyhound Racing Inquiry Task Force has been placed on probation for breaching her bail conditions.

Heather Rosemary Howard, 41, of Riverview, pleaded guilty to two breaches of bail, which related to an existing charge of stalking.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard Howard had breached her bail conditions by contacting members of the greyhound racing community via social media on October 1 and October 19.

She was placed on a 12-month probation order.

During that time she will have to submit to medical psychiatric assessment.

The stalking charge will be heard on January 7, 2016.

 

EARLIER: A 41-year-old Riverview woman has been charged following investigations by the Greyhound Racing Inquiry Task Force.

Previously charged with stalking, the woman has been further charged with breaching her bail conditions, after allegedly contacting members of the greyhound racing community via social media.

Police from the joint QPS/RSPCA Greyhound Racing Inquiry Task Force announced the new charges this morning, and the woman has been remanded in custody to face Ipswich Magistrates Court today.

Police say they are actively monitoring social media sites to ensure appropriate behaviour is adhered to.

Investigations are continuing and the Task Force urges anyone with information about live baiting, whether historic or current, to come forward and assist the investigation.
