Merseyside Police is welcoming a 12-week prison sentence and a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) against James Tully.
The CBO, issued at Liverpool Magistrates Court on Monday 12 April, will prevent 36-year-old Tully of Lowfield Road, Liverpool, from carrying out thefts, intimidation and anti-social behaviour, following a number of recent offences in Liverpool.
The Criminal Behaviour Order will run for two years upon his release from prison. Should he breach the conditions of this order, Tully will be returned to the courts and may be jailed.
Officers from Merseyside Police submitted the application following four separate incidents in Old Swan shops between January and March 2021 where Tully was charged with shoplifting, anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, witness intimidation and breach of bail offences.
Upon his release from prison, for the next two years Tully must not:
Enter any Tesco stores within the City of Liverpool.
Remain in any shop premises if asked to leave by a member of staff of those premises within the City of Liverpool
Speaking after the order was issued, Inspector Andrew Lloyd of the Community Policing Team said: "Criminal Behaviour Orders continue to be an extremely effective tool in tackling persistent offenders who have a negative impact on our communities.
"The successful application for a CBO for Tully shows the impact his behaviour has had on the community, as well as his intimidation of a witness which prevented their attendance in court.
“To apply for such an order is the necessary consequence of a long pattern of behaviour adversely affecting those who live and work in Liverpool, and we will continue to utilise them for the benefit of our community.”
