A woman who has regularly stolen from shops in Carlisle has been made subject of a Criminal Behaviour Order.
Stacey Sullivan, 36, of no fixed address was issued a two year community order on the 17th December at Carlisle Magistrates Court.
The order that will last for two years has conditions:
Not to enter any premises part of the Carlisle Stopwatch/ Retailers against crime scheme
Not to enter Jack Wills shop, Carlisle.
PC Sam Butler, Carlisle Local Focus Team, said:
“This CBO was a great outcome as Sullivan is a prolific shoplifter and I hope that the conditions will allow her to reflect on and change her behaviour.
“CBOs are a useful tool available to the courts which can help the offender to cease further criminality and help protect residents.
“In this instance, the court agreed with our application for the order regarding a persistent offender who we continually have to deal with which takes away resources to those that genuinely require the help of officers.
“I would encourage anyone who witnesses the terms of such a court order being broken to contact the police immediately. The punishment for breaking the terms of a CBO can be up to five years in prison.”
