Ex-lover stalks man

A TWEED Heads woman has been charged with stalking an ex-lover, who was believed to have moved to Gympie to get away from her.

It was alleged that Renee Fox, 40, had been parked in the man’s driveway on July 18. Police turned up and questioned her, confiscated three mobile phones, a letter she had written to the man and a map, and took her into custody. She said she was there to “break off” the relationship.

Fox appeared in the court dock on Monday and police prosecutor Sergeant Jason Todman opposed bail, sighting a long history of offences committed by Fox because of her “disturbing obsession with the complainant”.

Magistrate Maxine Baldwin said it was quite possible that Fox would go to jail if found guilty but granted her bail on the provision that she flew to Cairns to live with her estranged husband and didn’t come within 100 kilometres of Gympie, reported to the Cairns Police Station three times a week, provided proof of the airline ticket and paid a surety of $5000.

Fox was still in custody yesterday afternoon as it was believed she was unable to meet all of the provisions of bail. The matter was adjourned to August 16.
