Dated: 29 Jun 2012
A Gateshead teenager has been given a CRASBO as police continue their crackdown on crime and anti-social behvaiour.
Michael Boyce, 16, of Trent Street in Chopwell, was given the two-year Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) at Gateshead Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, June 26, following an application by police.
The two-year order excludes Boyce from visiting a large area of the River Streets in Chopwell other than his home address.
Neighbourhood Sergeant Adrian Oakley said: "Boyce's anti-social behaviour has caused problems for residents and officers across the area for a number of years.
"No-one should have to put up with behaviour which has a negative impact on their quality of life and we will always work with our partners to ensure the people involved are dealt with.
"This CRASBO is a significant measure in our efforts to tackle anti-social behaviour and one of the effective tools we use, and we hope it will make a real difference."
