Mum fined for delaying police search

A FORMER Warwick woman has been fined after police had to ask her several times to open her front door for them.

The Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday heard officers arrived at Monique Sarah Deighton's home at 10.30pm one evening, looking for her boyfriend.

The 31-year-old told police there wasn't anyone in the home except herself and three of her five children and refused to unlock her door.

After asking her to open the door repeatedly, officers told Deighton they were coming in anyway.

Deighton then disappeared into her home and returned a short time later with the man police were looking for.

The woman's lawyer told the court Deighton was not intentionally inhibiting police, but was concerned about upsetting her children.

The mother-of-five yesterday pleaded guilty to obstructing police.

She was fined $150.
