ASBO Bans Man From Beaminster Coop
12:03am 5th January 2014
As a Beaminster man receives an ASBO, Dorset Police say they're determined to stamp out anti-social behaviour in our county this year.
28-year-old Shane Raymond received the Anti Social Behaviour Order from Weymouth Magistrates' Court on Thursday 2nd January for repeat offences.
Dorset Police were joined in court by locals to the Beaminster and Bridport area, Raglan Housing Association and Spectrum Group to present evidence spanning over a number of years.
Wessex FM spoke to PC Scott McGregor from Bridport Police Station who explained they'll be taking evidence from one source very seriously, "From the public. They called in about his behaviour, in some cases that led to crime investigations, some were persuade in court. Other instances that were reported to us were when his behaviour was alarming and distressing to individuals. It was that, with the evidence that we put forward with the Housing Association that led to a conviction."
He continued to add, "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."
