Bradley Taylor (17), of no fixed address, has been given a five-year Anti Social Behaviour Order after appearing in Grays Magistrates Court on Tuesday (March 8th).
Thurrock Council applied for the Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) to protect residents from the teenager’s previous Anti-social Behaviour.
The order bans Taylor from a number of areas including Derwent Parade, Lidl and Tesco Express in South Ockendon as well as McDonalds in Lakeside Retail Park.
The court heard the teenager has regularly verbally abused shop staff, police officers and Police Community Protection Officers including using offensive language.
The five-year order also bans Taylor from associating with four specific youths, congregating in groups and possessing alcohol (open-containers) in a public place.
Thurrock Council Portfolio Holder for Crime and Disorder, Councillor Gerard Rice, said: “This is another successful court outcome for the Council’s Community Protection Team which works hard to protect the community from Anti-social Behaviour committed by a small minority or residents. We will continue to take action against anyone acting in this way and disrupting the lives of others.”
Any incidents of Anti-social Behaviour should be reported to Thurrock Council’s Community Protection Team on 01375 652211 or Essex Police on 0300 333 4444.
