A TROUBLEMAKER has been slapped with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order to protect the community.
Shane Raymond, 28, of Beaminster, was issued the order by Weymouth Magistrates’ Court after he was convicted of theft at the same court in September 2013. He was given a conditional discharge for that offence.
The ASBO was secured under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 to protect the public and is valid for five years.
Dorset Police, supported by residents in Beaminster and Bridport, Spectrum Housing Group and Raglan Housing Association, presented evidence at court about Raymond’s behaviour which spanned a number of years.
Afterwards, PC Scott McGregor of Bridport police, said: “I am extremely pleased with the result in court. I applied for this Anti-Social Behaviour Order with the sole purpose to protect residents and public of West Dorset from Raymond and his unacceptable behaviour.
“Anti-Social Behaviour Orders are necessary and the court agreed with our application and the need to protect the public.”
A spokesperson from Spectrum Housing Group said: “Spectrum Housing Group was pleased to support the action taken to gain this order. It shows that concerted effort working alongside Dorset Police can help successfully combat anti-social behaviour.
“We hope that the order will help to stop further incidents from occurring and allow other residents to get on with their lives. We remain committed to taking whatever steps are at our disposal within the law to stamp out anti-social behaviour.”
The order states Raymond must not:
- Act or incite others to act in an anti-social manner, that is to say, a manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household in the commission area of Dorset
- Use or incite others to use threatening, intimidating, insulting, racist or abusive words or behaviour in any place to which the public has access in the commission area of Dorset
