An American woman who allowed dangerous dogs to escape from her Dulwich mansion and then fled the country before she could be sentenced, was arrested as she arrived back at Heathrow.
Tracy Thier, 50, now living in Sydenham Hill, was given a far-reaching ASBO for allowing her dogs to roam the grounds of Beltwood House in packs. They were involved in serious incidents, including horrific attacks on members of the public, road and train accidents, and caused noise and nuisance to neighbours
Thier's ASBO prevented her from keeping dogs on any of the properties she is associated with, but she was soon found to have breached this by allowing friends to visit her with dogs.
But before she was sentenced, and while she was on bail, she disappeared to the US.
On her return to London almost two years later she was hauled before Tower Bridge Magistrates and District Judge Black, who had tried her for the breaches of the ASBO in 2008 and had reserved sentencing for himself.
He handed down a 100-day suspended sentence, ordered her to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and pay £1000 in costs within 28 days. A charge of failing to attend court had to be dropped because the court clerk did not have the appropriate form.
