A man who lied to police to avoid being arrested has been warned he is in the “last chance saloon”.
Darren Anderson, of Ettrick Crescent, was also caught with heroin worth £270 – just days after he had been granted bail.
He admitted that on Friday, with the intention of evading detection and prosecution, he told police that he was Corey Anderson, 30, and perverted the course of justice.
Anderson had been placed on bail at Dundee Sheriff Court on November 22.
The 29-year-old also pleaded guilty to breaching his bail condition by approaching and contacting Irene McCullock at an address on Kingsway East on the same day.
Anderson further admitted possessing heroin, a Class A drug, while at police headquarters on West Bell Street on Saturday.
Fiscal depute Laura Bruce told the court that officers found 4.5g of heroin on Anderson.
She said that despite giving a false name, Anderson, who appeared in the dock from custody, was quickly identified by a police sergeant.
Solicitor David Duncan said: “He has not had many Christmases at liberty and he does not relish the prospect of another in custody.”
Before bailing Anderson and deferring sentence until January 3, Sheriff George Way said: “He is very much in the last chance saloon.
“He cannot get into any more bother of any kind.”
