A Flintshire man has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO), a new police power brought in to replace ASBO’s or Anti-Social Behaviour Orders.

The order, aimed at tackling ‘persistently anti-social individuals’ was granted at Mold Magistrates Court on Tuesday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

It means that 27-year-old Martyn Ozzrick Knight-Jones from Bridge Terrace in Treuddyn, has been issued with a five-year Criminal Behaviour Order. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Mr Knight-Jones is now excluded from certain areas of Penyffordd, the order also bans him from using or encouraging others to use foul, abusive, insulting, offensive, threatening, disorderly or intimidating language or behaviour in any public place or towards any person in either Flintshire or Wrexham county. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The order was granted after North Wales Police received complaints from the public regarding Mr Knight-Jones’ behaviour. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The CNO also orders the man not to drive any vehicle in an anti-social manner, including revving a vehicle in the street, not to work on or maintain vehicles in the street and cause annoyance and distress to other residents. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Breaching a CBO could see Knight-Jones facing up to five years in prison and, or a fine of up to £5,000. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

PC Natalie Williams from the Safer Neighbourhood Team said:

I am pleased the court has seen fit to issue Mr Knight-Jones with a Criminal Behaviour Order. This is designed to tackle his persistent anti-social behaviour and address his offending. If he breaches the order it provides us with the power to arrest him and he could be sent to prison. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

We will manage this order but I would encourage anybody who witnesses him breaching this order to contact us via 101 as soon as possible. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

I hope this order will provide local residents with some reassurance. North Wales Police work alongside local authorities and the local community to ensure any concerns they may have are addressed and dealt with and we will relentlessly pursue those individuals who cause such harm within our communities. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
