Sergeant Kelly Palmer said: “Haywood has caused persistent issues within the Louth community for a long time. She targeted retail premises with no regard for the impact her actions would have on staff, the business or the local community.
"We want to protect our communities from all types of offending, and orders like this enable us to send a clear message that her behaviour won’t be tolerated. It also provides reassurance to our community that if she does breach the conditions, she will face a criminal conviction which could lead to prison time. She now has an opportunity to take the help and support being offered and rehabilitate herself.”
We keep a continued watch of people who have been issued with CBOs, and we proactively release their image so that members of the community have the opportunity to recognise offending, and are more able to report an incident if one occurs.
