A PROLIFIC offender from North West Leicestershire has had his crime-related antisocial behaviour order activated.
Brendan Evans, 24, of Norris Hill in Moira, was sentenced to 16 months in prison at Leicester Crown Court in February this year. He was told he must serve a minimum of eight months, with the remainder of the sentence to be suspended for two years.
He was sentenced after being found in possession of MCAT with intent to supply a class B controlled drug in Measham in 2013. He also breached a community rehabilitation order by committing the offence.
Now the order, known as a CRASBO, has come into effect for the next five years and means that Evans cannot be in a public place in the company of more than one individual under 21 years of age within the area of Measham unless it is part of an officially organised and supervised activity.
This includes religious, educational or work purposes. Evans must also carry proof of such legitimate activity which can be provided immediately on demand.
The order also forbids him from being intoxicated through alcohol or drugs in a public place within the area of Measham.
Sergeant Mark Watson of the Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Evans was linked to antisocial behaviour in the village and we are pleased that he has been given a CRASBO, it will assist us in our ongoing fight against such behaviour in the area and help us to tackle drugs misuse.
“Please, if you see Evans in the village and believe he is breaking the conditions of his CRASBO, call 101.”
