Man jailed for 48 weeks af­ter break­ing or­der

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

A MAN has been jailed af­ter “per­sis­tent” beg­ging, in­ject­ing drugs in view of the pub­lic and shoplift­ing.

Nathan Mal­born, of Vit­to­ria Walk, was handed a 48-week jail term at Chel­tenham Mag­is­trates’ Court on Fri­day, Jan­uary 25.

The 25-year-old breached a Crim­i­nal Be­hav­iour Or­der when he com­mit­ted his of­fences. A change to the CBO means he is now banned from en­ter­ing parts of the town cen­tre.

The ap­pli­ca­tion was made by So­lace, an agency which fights an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour.

So­lace team leader Louise Boyle said: “The sup­port that was of­fered to Mal­born in­clud­edfind­ing him ac­com­mo­da­tion which he re­fused to take without rea­son, seek­ing help with his life­style choices and pro­vid­ing on­go­ing sup­port to ad­dress his ad­dic­tion to class A drugs, all of which he re­fused to en­gage with.

“We are com­mit­ted to re­duc­ing an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour in Chel­tenham and Glouces­ter through both sup­port and en­force­ment ac­tion where needed.”

So­lace in­cludes of­fi­cers from Glouces­ter­shire po­lice, Chel­tenham Bor­ough Coun­cil and Glouces­ter City Coun­cil.
