Man made 6,000 hoax calls saying his penis was stuck in household objects

Now this one is just plain weird.

Welsh bachelor Gareth Lloyd has avoided a jail term after making nearly 6,000 phone calls in three months saying his manhood was stuck in household objects including a jam jar and a vacuum cleaner.


The court heard an extensive search was launched to track down the nuisance caller.Lloyd, of Bryn y Coed, Holywell, made 5,800 calls from an unregistered pay-as-you-go mobile phone between February and April.

BT traced the number but police could not find him.

He was only caught when his number came up on another mobile phone police were analysing. Prosecutor Justin Espie said some people spoke of their upset and anxiety at the calls.

Lloyd, who is a carer for his 84-year-old mother, apologised and said he did not realise the impact it would have. Flintshire magistrates’ court heard some of the calls were of a sexual nature, but that he never went into explicit detail.

Phillip Marshall-Thomas, defending, said there was no obscene language or threats of violence.

‘He thought that he was having a bit of a joke. It was a joke in poor taste, perhaps a little perverted to say the least. He accepts that,’ Mr Marshall-Thomas said.

‘He now realises that his behaviour was totally unacceptable.’

The court heard that Lloyd does not have a drinking problem, but that some of the calls were made after he had been drinking.

Lloyd admitted making calls which caused annoyance, inconvenience and needless anxiety, and making calls which were grossly offensive.

He was given a 12-month community order after pleading guilty to three charges under the Telecommunications Act.

District judge Andrew Shaw also banned him from using a mobile phone other than a contract phone, where his details would be registered, for 12 months.

Lloyd was told to pay £85 costs.
