Woman created 134 hoax reports to Met Police to harass her ex-boyfriend

Published

on

A woman who created hundreds of hoax crime reports to harass her ex-boyfriend and the women he subsequently dated has been convicted of stalking.

During her vendetta, Sandra Danevska sent 134 bogus online reports, resulting in 170 Metropolitan Police Service dispatch logs being created.

Her actions led to her former boyfriend being implicated as a suspect for rape, acid attacks and stabbings – and the two women he went on to date being subjected to a traumatic online campaign.

Danevska, 38 of Winslow Road, Hammersmith, was found guilty on Wednesday, 29 June at Isleworth Crown Court of three counts of stalking involving serious alarm or distress.

She was also convicted of two counts of perverting the course of justice.

The court heard how Danevska and ‘victim 1’ had dated for a number of weeks around 10 years ago.

They had another brief relationship in 2013 before he said he wanted to go back to simply being friends.

Danevska then subjected ‘victim 1’ (now aged 45) and the two women (victim 2, aged 34, and victim 3, aged 37) he later went out with to repeated stalking and harassment.

She set up bogus social media profiles and fake email addresses in her ex-boyfriend’s name to send threatening and malicious messages to other people. She also used various mobiles to make numerous silent calls and send text messages to him.

In 2014, Danevska began sending ‘victim 1’ almost daily emails from unknown accounts commenting on things he had done during the day, leading him to fear he was being followed.

She created 134 hoax online crime reports using the details of 60 different people to implicate him as a suspect in crimes – police attended his home address 42 times and his place of work 10 times in response.

Among the many bogus allegations were claims that various made-up victims had been stabbed, raped or had acid thrown in their faces.

‘Victim 2’ went out with Danevska’s former boyfriend in 2010 and also became the target of her campaign, receiving numerous threatening and malicious text messages and emails.

Danevska set up several social media accounts and email addresses in her name. Again, these email addresses were used to send threatening messages to other people.

‘Victim 3’ had also been a girlfriend of ‘victim 1’ – they had dated between October 2012 and October 2013.

Police attended her address a number of times responding to reports of crime, supposedly created by her.

She also received numerous malicious messages from Danevska via various social media accounts. Some commented on her movements during the day.

A police investigation into the harassment began in 2011 but Danevska had covered her tracks in such a way she couldn’t be identified.

It was only in 2015 that a series of bogus social media profiles were traced to various addresses.

The occupiers of those addresses were employing Danevska as a nanny and police obtained a warrant to search her home in May 2015.

They seized SIM cards, computer equipment and a diary in which she had noted the movements of ‘victim 1’.

In September 2015, she was charged with the offences.

She will be sentenced on Friday, 26 August.

Detective Constable Dean Puzey, of Hammersmith and Fulham CID, said: “This woman’s actions caused her victims unimaginable distress.

“Danevska stalked multiple victims and used social media and the police crime reporting system to make their lives intolerable.

Her ex-boyfriend, an entirely innocent man, found himself a suspect for rape, stabbings and acid attacks – the impact on his life in particular was horrendous.

“Her actions also caused a massive waste of police time. Throughout Danevska’s campaign, 17 of London’s 32 boroughs responded to bogus reports of crime as a result of her malicious calls; her vendetta was a huge drain on police resources.

“Thankfully cases of multiple stalking are very rare and, despite all her efforts to avoid detection, we have finally been able to bring her to justice.”

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
