[O]fficers in north Cumbria have taken action to stop a Carlisle man’s serial antisocial and criminal behaviour.
A three-year Criminal Behaviour Order was secured today (12th June) at North Cumbria Magistrates’ Court against Adrian John Whitelock, aged 38, of Eden Street, Carlisle.
The conditions of the order prohibit Whitelock from:
- Entering any premises that are members of the Carlisle Shopwatch / Retailers against Crime scheme.
- Entering or be found within any retail premises within Carlisle city centre.
- Entering Well Pharmacy on Eden Street in Carlisle.
PC Lori Tallantire said: “I am pleased with the outcome of this case, it has involved hard work from officers and support from retailers and Carlisle’s Shopwatch scheme. It sends out a clear message that antisocial and criminal behaviour will not be tolerated.
“I hope that this will allow Adrian to reflect on and change his behaviour.
“Shoplifting is not just an economic crime, it has knock effects throughout a community, so we will continue to work closely with retailers and Shopwatch members to prevent this type of crime. I hope that this result reassures retailers that shoplifting is taken seriously.”
Anyone who witnesses Adrian Whitelock breaching the terms of his Criminal Behaviour Order should contact the police.
