A Chester man has been sentenced to 20 weeks in prison and handed a three year Criminal Behaviour Order thanks to the work of officers from Chester Local Policing Unit and Cheshire West and Chester.
Jamie Alan Lloyd, 21/07/87, was arrested in 12 November 2015 in relation to a number of incidents that had been committed across Chester. Following questioning, Lloyd was charged with theft from Motor Vehicle, Burglary and theft of pedal cycle.
On appearing at Chester Magistrates Court on Wednesday 23 December Lloyd was convicted of all three offences and sentenced to 20 weeks in prison.
Following his custodial sentencing Cheshire Police and Cheshire West and Chester went back to Court on Monday 4 January 2016 where, after being presented with evidence about Lloyds extensive criminal history, the judge agreed to grant a three year Criminal Behaviour Order against him.
The three year Criminal Behaviour Order prohibits Lloyd from:
- Entering the garden, garage, yard or of any private dwelling unless it is a family property or with the expressed consent of the owner
- Deliberately touch, enter or attempt to enter in or on any motor vehicle, except public transport without the consent of the owner or registered keeper
- Be on or in possession of a pedal cycle without proof of ownership,
- Be in possession of power tools , jewellery, electrical goods, games equipment without a valid receipt or where he can show he has the permission of the owner to have/use the item,
- Enter the exclusion area shaded in grey/outlined on the attached map between 7pm and 7am - This is the Upton area
Lloyd also has to comply with a Positive Requirement that requires him to engage with the Drug and Alcohol Service, Turning Point and engage in a program as directed by the Supervising Officer of that service.
Detective Sergeant Nick Henderson, from Chester Local Policing Unit, said: “Lloyds actions have had a detrimental impact members of the public, causing them significant upset and distress.
“Despite repeated efforts to stop Lloyds offending behaviour, he simply rebuffed all offers of help and carried on committing crime, leaving us with no option but to apply for a Criminal Behaviour order.”
Sam Chapman, Cheshire West and Chester Community Safety Officer, said: “This order is a Preventative order, the conditions of which are designed to stop Lloyd committing offences .
“Lloyd has no consideration at all on the effect his behaviour has on people in Chester and this Order is completely necessary to protect the public who have a right to feel safe in their own homes and to protect their own property.”
Anyone who sees Lloyd breaking any of the conditions of his Criminal Behaviour Order is urged to contact Cheshire Police on 101.
