A Guelph woman faces an obstruction charge after reportedly providing a fake name to police Tuesday.

Officers on patrol just after 7:30 a.m. located a woman downtown and believed she was wanted for failing to appear on outstanding charges including possessing stolen property, obstructing police and several counts of breaching court orders.

The woman repeatedly provided a fake name and denied being wanted. She was eventually identified using police records and was arrested.

A 34-year-old is further charged with obstructing police, failing to appear in court and breach of probation. She was held for a bail hearing.
