Man handed injuction following series of intimidating, drunken incidentsA man has been banned from part of Dunstable town centre following a number of intimidating drunken incidents.
Magill Price, 57, of Caddington, is now subject to a one-year injunction banning him from an area which includes The Quadrant shopping centre, Dunstable Library and Asda.
This follows numerous incidences of drunken behaviour where Price threatened, abused and terrified staff even though he had already been banned from a number of stores there.
Price was ordered to attend Luton County Court on 10 October where Central Bedfordshire Council, supported by Bedfordshire Police, successfully applied for the injunction.
It took effect for a year from that date and if Price enters the area from which he is banned then he will be taken back to county court and face further action. If he continues to breach the order he risks a custodial sentence.
Councillor Brian Spurr, Executive Member for Community Services, said: “This is an excellent example of partnership working and shows that by working together we can achieve an effective result in dealing with antisocial behaviour which we are determined to tackle head on.
“I would like to thank shop staff and library staff for being supportive and giving our antisocial behaviour officers the evidence we needed to progress this case.”
Anyone who is aware of Price breaching the injunction should call the council’s antisocial behaviour and statutory nuisance team on 0300 300 8302.
