POLICE officers who saw a man urinating in the doorway of a solicitors' office in Bread Street, Penzance, were given a false name when they questioned him.

But they found out he was Dean Howard, 37, of Bread Street, Penzance, who was wanted on warrants issued in Liverpool. When arrested Howard was drunk and in possession of a nearly empty quarter-bottle of vodka.
