A THIEF who breached his Anti-So­cial Be­hav­iour Or­der has been jailed

Luigi In­glese, 39,of no fixed abode, was sen­tenced at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court on Satur­day, April 18 to four weeks in pri­son for theft and breach of his ASBO.

The court heard that a con­di­tion of In­glese’s ASBO banned him from go­ing into Uxbridge town cen­tre.

On Thurs­day, April 16, In­glese was in­side the Marks & Spencer’s store in High Street, where mem­bers of staff saw him steal­ing.

The next day In­glese was seen once again in­side the same store and staff called po­lice, who ar­rested and charged him.

Act­ing Po­lice Sergeant James Burgess said: “In­glese was fully aware of the con­di­tions of his ASBO but con­tin­ued to breach them in or­der to com­mit a crime.

“The po­lice and the town cen­tre se­cu­rity team con­tinue to work to­gether to cre­ate a safe and crime free town cen­tre for peo­ple to shop and en­joy.

“Those who think they can come here to be of an­noy­ance to oth­ers or com­mit a crime will be dealt with by the po­lice.”
