Criminal Behaviour Orders given two Telford teenagers

Police and partners in Telford have secured Criminal Behaviour Orders on two teenagers whose behaviour blighted the lives of local residents.

Over a three month period last year police received more than a dozen calls about the behaviour of 19 year old Sam Shepherd and a 17 year old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, in Woodside.

Earlier this month, Telford Magistrates' Court issued the orders after the pair were convicted at court for assault.

The 17 year old was dealt with a Telford Youth Court.

Shepherd, who is of Willowfield, was given a five year Criminal Behaviour Order. The 17 year old was given a Criminal Behaviour Order that will last for three years.

PC Ian Cole said: "Local residents should not have to put up with the anti-social behaviour of a few individuals and we're determined to do all we can, in partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council and other agencies, to curb the behaviour of those responsible."

The conditions include:

- Not to shout, fight, bang on windows or engage in any dispute such that nuisance, harassment, alarm or distress could be caused or is likely to be caused to any resident in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin.

- Not to threaten to cause, attempt to cause, or cause criminal damage to any property or premises.

- Not to use, demonstrate or threaten violence or intimidate any person.

- Not to use foul, abusive, insulting, offensive or racist language or gestures towards anyone or encourage others to do so within the Borough of Telford and Wrekin.

- Not to visit any housing scheme for elderly or vulnerable people without prior appointment arranged by staff.
