Barrow man issued with two-year Criminal Behaviour Order



A Barrow man has been issued with a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order for alcohol and drug related public order offences.
 
Carl Ward, aged 26, of Abbotsmead Approach, was issued with the order at South Cumbria Magistrates’ Court on 30th May.
 
The conditions of the order prohibit Ward from:
 
•         Acting in an anti-social manner that is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household.
•         Being drunk, in any intoxicated state or consuming alcohol in any public place.
 
Inspector Jim Bailey said:
 
“Criminal Behaviour Orders are a useful tool available to the courts which can help the offender to cease further criminality and help protect local businesses.
 
“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 a Criminal Behaviour Order can be up to five years in prison.
