A MAN from Crosby has been banned from touching cars after carrying out a “plague” of crimes.
Khia Roberts, 23, of Eden Drive North, has been handed a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order saying he can’t touch or enter any unattended vehicle without the express permission of the owner, anywhere in Merseyside.
He is also prevented from being on any private dwelling, building, garden, driveway or path, occupied or not, without the express permission of the owner, anywhere in Merseyside.
He was given the orders at South Sefton Magistrates Court on Tuesday, November 23.
Community Policing Inspector Chris Taylor said: “This order will I’m sure be great news for residents in the south Sefton area and beyond, some of whom have been plagued by the criminal activities of Roberts.
“Criminal Behaviour Orders continue to be an extremely effective tool and our successful application for the CBO against Roberts in this case shows our commitment to dealing robustly with repeat offenders who have a negative impact on the community.
“Should Roberts breach the conditions of this order, he will be arrested, returned to court and may be jailed.”
