A PER­SIS­TENT Uxbridge of­fender has been banned from drink­ing in public for three years.

Gary Vines, 29, was handed a Crim­i­nal Be­hav­iour Or­der (CBO) af­ter re­peat­edly com­mit­ting crime and caus­ing anti-so­cial be­hav­iour.

Over the last two years, Vines had been in­volved in in­ci­dents within Uxbridge and Ruis­lip be­cause of his ad­dic­tion to al­co­hol.

These in­cluded steal­ing from cars, shoplift­ing, public or­der of­fences, be­ing drunk in the street, and as­sault­ing a shop keeper.

Vines would regularly be­come ag­gres­sive to­wards store staff and se­cu­rity as well as the po­lice when de­tained fol­low­ing his shoplift­ing of­fences.

He was served with the CBO at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates Court on Tues­day, July 28, which now means he is banned from con­sum­ing al­co­hol in a public place for the next three years.

Po­lice Sergeant Nick Davies from Hilling­don Li­cens­ing, Anti-So­cial Be­hav­iour and Gangs Unit, said: “Vines’ un­ac­cept­able be­hav­iour caused a num­ber of peo­ple alarm and dis­tress. Even af­ter re­peated warn­ings, he con­tin­ued to get drunk, steal and be abu­sive to­wards staff.

“I hope this CBO makes him re­alise the dis­tress he has caused and that he now gets sup­port he needs to deal with his al­co­hol prob­lems.”

Vines now has a CBO with the fol­low­ing con­di­tions, all of which will last for three years. He must not:

Con­sume al­co­hol in any public place in Eng­land and Wales un­less in a li­censed premises.

Have in his pos­ses­sion or in­side a ve­hi­cle in Eng­land and Wales any form of opened al­co­holic ves­sel (bot­tle/can/cup) un­less in a li­censed premises.

En­ter or at­tempt to en­ter Ruis­lip High Street and Uxbridge High Street, un­less at­tend­ing the job cen­tre or wait­ing for public trans­port, for ex­am­ple at a bus stop.
