A Workington man has been handed a two-year criminal behaviour order to curb his anti-social and criminal behaviour.
Thomas Morton, 43, of Station Road, was given the order at North and West Cumbria Magistrates Court
Morton was also made subject of a curfew.
He must not:
- Enter any property or premises that are members of the Workington Shopwatch Scheme at any time, and not to enter all other premises which display a Workington Shopwatch notice.
- Not to enter Workington Town Centre any time except to attend any pre-arranged appointments.
- Not to enter any Iceland Food Plc Stores in West Cumbria
- Not to enter any McColl’s store in West Cumbria
- Not to enter any Boots the Chemist Stores in West Cumbria
- Not to interfere or tamper with or remove the contents of any bin which does not belong to the defendant without the express permission of the owner
- Not to interfere or tamper with the any rubbish bags which do not belong to the defendant without the express permission of the owner.
PC Edwards, of Allerdale Local focus team, said: “This order was a great outcome as he was causing anti-social behaviour to the wider community.
“In this instance, the court agreed with our application for the order regarding a persistent offender who we continually have to deal with which takes away resources to those that genuinely require the help of officers.
“I would encourage anyone who witnesses the terms of such a court order being broken to contact the police immediately. The punishment for breaking the terms of an order can be up to five years in prison.”
Anyone who witnesses Morton breaching the terms of his CBO should contact the police, he added.
