Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) after breaching his Community Protection Notice.
Kieron Stannard, aged 18 of St Mary’s Place, Newbury appeared at Reading Magistrates Court on Tuesday (12/6).
The CBO was granted as a result of Stannard breaching a Community Protection Notice, that was issued on 1 March, following persistent anti-social behaviour. A condition of this notice prevented him from entering Reading Town Centre.
On 6 March he breached this notice by walking along Friar Street in contravention to the exclusion zone.
The CBO, which is in place for two years, prohibits Stannard from entering Reading town centre, except for the Caversham entrance to the train station, and engaging in any anti-social behaviour. Breach of this order could result in a fine or imprisonment.
As well as receiving the CBO, Stannard was also fined £100 and ordered to pay a further £130 in court costs after breaching his original Community Protection Notice.
PC Nicola Henderson based at Reading police station said: “This is a good outcome for the local community who have been impacted by persistent anti-social behaviour over several months.
“Thames Valley Police take reports of such behaviour very seriously and we will use a range of legislation to bring those responsible to justice.
“Anyone affected by anti-social behaviour can contact the 24-hour Thames Valley Police enquiry centre on 101 and ask to speak to their local Neighbourhood team.”
