Shoplifter given suspended jail sentence and banned from shops

A man has been given a 12-week suspended jail sentence after pleading guilty to theft charges in Cirencester and breaching the terms of his Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).

Danny Ross, aged 25 (pictured right), was given the CBO in March 2018 which prevented him from entering City Safe Retailers in Gloucester.

Ross, formerly of Cirencester but now living in Cheltenham, appeared at Cheltenham Magistrates' Court last Wednesday (30 January) charged with an attempted theft from Tesco in Cirencester, theft from WH Smith and breaching the CBO in Gloucester.

The terms of his CBO were amended and he is now banned from entering any retail premises in Gloucestershire with the exception of the following locations in Cheltenham: Tesco in Colletts Drive; Iceland in Edinburgh Place; the pharmacy/chemist in Swindon Road; and the post office in Tewkesbury Road as well as pubs, restaurants, fast food outlets and banks.

The order will last for three years and failure to keep the conditions will result in arrest.

PC Richie Webb, from the Cirencester town Neighbourhood Police Team, said:

"This is an excellent result which should protect the retailers of Gloucestershire who have been regular targets of Ross and means that officers will have more time to spend in the community.

"If Ross returns to Cirencester and re-offends, or commits any offence anywhere else in Gloucestershire, he will be arrested.

"I hope that this latest sentence will, however, make him think about his actions and turn over a new leaf."

This follows another man also banned from Cirencester shops last week; Read more: Shoplifter banned from Cotswold businesses
