A man from Blandford has been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order.
Daniel Westwood, 21, was issued with the order by Poole Magistrates' Court on Monday 6th February 2017 after being sentenced to eight weeks in prison last September for shoplifting offences.

- Be in possession of any open containers of alcohol in any public place in Dorset unless it is a licensed premises, such as a pub.
- Enter any shop from which he has been banned .
PC Rob Hammond, of Blandford Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "Daniel Westwood's drug and alcohol-related anti-social behaviour has caused serious concerns to many residents in Blandford for a long time.
"We hope this order will provide Mr Westwood with a clear set of guidelines to adhere to in order to reduce his offending.
"This evidence has taken several months to compile and reach court, where the order was granted. Massive praise must go to the Blandford community for their evidence gathering and co-operation so we could obtain this indefinite order.
"In addition, acknowledgement must go to PCSO Matt Boon from the local Neighbourhood Policing Team for his continued commitment, time and effort to see this reach a positive conclusion."
