Extended Asbo for jailed troublemaker
TIGHTER controls will be imposed on a regular troublemaker after a new antisocial behaviour order was made on him.
An original two-year Asbo made in December 2010 has been extended by two more years.
The order was made against Mark Stubbs, 25, who has previously lived in a Grimsby hostel.
The new tougher conditions were imposed at Hull Magistrates' Court.
After the hearing, Chief Inspector Will Jenkins, who is responsible for operations and neighbourhood policing within North East Lincolnshire, said: "Stubbs can get very aggressive and violent with police officers, police community support officers and those who try to catch and detain him in shops.
"He has recently been in prison for an offence of shop theft in Immingham and one in Hull.
"His record is appalling and he has breached his current Asbo several times in the two years that he has had it.
"The new Asbo has two exclusion zones that will far better protect shopkeepers and shoppers than before.
"Stubbs will remain in prison over the festive season, and he is due for release early in February.
"When he does come back, we will be ready for him and, at the slightest sign of him misbehaving, we will make sure that he is arrested and put back before the courts."
Conditions of the new Asbo include banning Stubbs from:
Remaining in any premises when asked to leave.
Acting, or inciting others to act, in an antisocial manner by causing harassment, alarm or distress.
Entering an exclusion zone area including St Peter's Avenue, Cleethorpes, and Grimsby town centre.
Being drunk in any public place.
