A prolific street drinker from Gloucester has been handed a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) banning him from entering certain parts of the city.
The order was imposed on Robert McGladdery at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court on Thursday 5 October following his conviction for theft.
This order is available under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act of 2014.
The CBO which has been granted for 3 years means that McGladdery is now prohibited from:
Entering an exclusion zone as defined by a map (except for the Library).
Entering London Road between Bruton Way and Claremont Road
This will stop him from drinking in Kings Square and the Rose garden opposite Newton House, areas where others are known to have caused anti-social behaviour.
PC Plant who obtained the order said: “Mr McGladdery is a persistent offender who causes issues in the City centre fuelled by alcohol. This order will prevent him from gathering with other street drinkers and causing problems, which reflects badly on our City and puts off visitors”.
“We will continue to tackle social issues such as street drinking, begging and rough sleeping in a bid to make Gloucester a better place to live and work”.
If you happen to see Mr McGladdery within the exclusion zone please contact the police on 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
