Two-year Asbo for teenage burglar in bid to stop his crime sprees
BURGLAR and thief Warren Cawley has been given a two-year antisocial behaviour order in a bid to stamp out his crime sprees.
The 19-year-old, of Hainton Avenue, Grimsby, admitted burglary at Fourways chip shop, in South Road, North Somercotes, involving stealing £150 cash, on September 2.
He also admitted stealing a purse containing cash, bank cards and store cards, valued at £142, belonging to Caroline Smith; stealing a bicycle, valued at £100; and possessing cannabis on January 12.
The Asbo was imposed at Grimsby Magistrates' Court.

He was also given a four-month suspended prison sentence and a one-year supervision order.
Cawley told the court he had changed his behaviour, with the help of his girlfriend.
He claimed: "You won't see me again."
District Judge Daniel Curtis told him: "I'd like a pound for every person that's said that to me, but I hope we don't."
The Asbo conditions were not opposed by defence solicitor Roy Foreman.
After the hearing, Inspector Mel Christie, of the neighbourhood policing team, said: "Warren Cawley is a thief and a burglar and when he commits these crimes, there are victims who inevitably suffer.
"In court, he told the district judge that he would mend his ways and I hope he does.
"He is going to get only this chance. A suspended sentence means that, if he re-offends, the sentence can be activated, potentially in full.
"The district judge has seen fit to impose the Asbo and I thank him for that. It will undoubtedly assist us in controlling Cawley."
