A teenager who made the lives of people in Sandbach and Crewe a misery has been handed a criminal behaviour order banning her from parts of the towns for two years.
Konnie Looms, 18, of no fixed abode, had been causing extensive anti-social behaviour for more than a year, including assaults and criminal damage.
At Crewe Magistrates Court this month Looms was issued with the Criminal Behaviour Order, which prevents her from entering areas including The Commons, Sandbach Park, and High Street including the cobbles, unless given express permission by police to do so.
She is also prohibited from acting in an anti-social manner in a public place, using or encouraging foul or abusive language or intimidating behaviour.
This also includes public buildings such as Delamere House in Crewe.
She is further prohibited from associating with a named person.
Councillor Paul Bates said: “All of these incidents have impacted on members of the public who have witnessed this shocking behaviour.
“I hope this order will give this young woman the boundaries she needs to improve her behaviour within the communities she frequents.”
Insp Kate Woods, who leads partnership working for Crewe Local Policing Unit, added: “This action has come about as a result of persistent offending which was causing distress to residents and businesses by this particular individual.
“I hope this sends a strong message that we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in our towns and, working closely with our partners, we will take robust action against those who persistently cause a misery to those who visit, work or live in Sandbach and Crewe.”
The action is part of an ongoing initiative between police and Cheshire East Council’s anti-social behaviour team.
