Banned from town centre
A LOUGHBOROUGH man who was convicted for a number of thefts from shops has now been banned from the town centre.
In August, Daniel Jones, 30, of Belton Road, Loughborough, pleaded guilty to five counts of theft and was sentenced to 10 months in prison.
However police told the Echo that he was released from prison earlier and is now the subject of a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).
A police spokesperson said that the two–year order ends in August 2019 and prohibits Jones from:
• Entering any part of Loughborough town centre - the boundaries have been drawn in such a way to allow access to support services without the need to enter retail areas.
• Entering any retail premises in Loughborough from which he has been banned by staff or any person acting on their behalf
• Remaining within any retail premises in Loughborough if asked to leave by staff or any person acting on their behalf.
PC Mike Green is the dedicated neighbourhood officer for Loughborough town centre and he said: “Jones is a prolific shoplifter and we have worked closely with businesses in the town centre to address their concerns about his criminal behaviour.
“As a result we were successful in securing a CBO which prohibits Jones from entering certain areas and premises he has been banned from and we hope this will now deter him from committing further offences.
“We would ask the public to contact us if they witness Jones breaching the terms of his order. If you have any information please contact 101.”
