A TEENAGER from Frodsham has been made subject of a stringent curfew as part of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).
David Ian Wade, of Weaver Crescent, appeared at Vale Royal Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday when he was made the subject of a three-year ASBO.
The ASBO prohibits 17-year-old Wade from leaving his home between 9pm and 7am, unless he has prior written consent from the relevant police inspector.
He is banned from using or threatening to use violence, using foul language or drinking alcohol.
He is also banned from congregating in a group of three or more people in a public place, unless he is taking part in, or part of the audience at, a sporting or other public event.
Frodsham ASBO co-ordinator PC Nikki Sharp said: “The imposition of this ASBO will give officers and other agencies the opportunity to work with David Wade and could see an end to his anti-social behaviour.
“We do not ask for these orders to be imposed lightly and they form part of a programme of intervention aimed at helping the community and the individual.
“The conditions of the ASBO should go some way towards giving Frodsham residents peace of mind and show that Cheshire Police takes their concerns seriously. I would also like to thank those who have provided the information which has enabled the ASBO to be imposed.
“Cheshire Police is working to reduce anti-social behaviour and is achieving significant results, but the challenge remains and only by working together with communities can the force make a real difference in improving the quality of life for all.”
Because Wade is a youth, the court has banned The Chronicle from reporting why he has been given the ASBO.
