ASBO prevents man from entering 72 shops
12:00pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
A CHELTENHAM man has been issued with an anti social behaviour order which outlines that he cannot enter 72 of the town’s shops and supermarkets.
Under the order Raymond Andrew Grant, 51, of no fixed abode in Cheltenham, is ordered not to enter the 72 stores. He is also ordered not to enter Henrietta Street in the town.
Gloucestershire Constabulary applied for the ASBO following Grant’s conviction for shoplifting offences earlier this year.
The order was issued on August 30 and will remain in place for three years.
The court found that Grant had acted in an anti-social manner by entering shops shouting, demanding money, using abusive language and being intimidating towards staff.
PC Suzy Armstrong said: “We strongly believe that we should do everything within our power to support shop owners and staff in preventing shoplifting offences and to provide a safe environment for them to work, free from abusive language and intimidating behaviour.
“We hope that the successful application for an ASBO against Mr Grant reassures local business, shoppers and residents that we do not rest on our laurels when it comes to anti social behaviour and theft, both of which can be destructive to a community and upsetting for local residents.”
The shops Grant is prohibited from entering are: • Accessorize • Animal • The Beechwood Centre • BHS • Blacks • Boots (High Street) • Boots (Gallagher Retail Park) • Cancer Research • Cavendish House • Claire’s Accessories • Co-op (Bath Road) • Co-op (Benhall Avenue) • Co-op (Church Street, Charlton Kings) • Co-op (Gloucester Road) • Co-op (Hester’s Way Road) • Co-op (Leckhampton Road) • Co-op (London Road) • Co-op (Montpellier Street) • Co-op (Parton Road) • Co-op (St Johns Avenue) • Co-op (Salisbury Avenue) • Co-op (The Green, Bishop’s Cleeve) • Co-op (Windyridge Road) • Debenhams • Disney Store • Evans • Feva Designs • French Connection • Gap • HMV • Jacks Wills • Joules • Iceland • Karen Millen • Lakeland • Lidl • Marks & Spencer (High Street) • Marks & Spencer Simply Food (Tewkesbury Rd) • Marks & Spencer Home (Tewkesbury Rd) • Matalan • Monsoon • Mothercare • New Look • Oasis/Warehouse • Oxfam • PDSA • Poundland • Primark • Regent Arcade • Reiss • Republic • River Island • Russell & Bromley • Sainsburys Local (Bath Rd) • Savers • Space NK • Sports Direct • Sue Ryder Care • Superdrug • Superdry • The Brewery Centre • The Entertainer • The White Company • TK Maxx • Tesco (Colletts Dr) • Tesco Express (Hewlett Rd) • Tesco Metro (High Street) • Top Shop • Waitrose • Waterstones • WHSmith • Wilkinsons
