Onchan man accused of committing act against public justice

42-year-old appears in court

An Onchan man has appeared in court accused of committing an act against public justice.

Ross James Patrick Mcwhinnie, of Howe Road, allegedly reported a car as being stolen when he knew it wasn’t.

Magistrates at Douglas Courthouse were told it had been found abandoned after a police chase on 26 October last year.

Committal proceedings, where the case is elevated to the Court of General Gaol Delivery, will take place on 23 May; the 42-year-old has been bailed until that date.
