Main article content
A man has been banned from Chester city centre for the next five years after being ordered to adhere to a Criminal Behaviour Order.
David Hill, of no fixed address but of Ellesmere Port, was handed the order at Chester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 28 February.
His offences include drunk and disorderly, driving offences and theft of a motor vehicle.
The 55-year-old is now forbidden from entering Chester city centre.
The CBO, which was applied for by Chester City Beat Team, prohibits Hill from entering the city centre, bound by the attached map, except for attending any pre-arranged medical appointments on a specific route, and from having any open container of alcohol in a public place.
If Hill fails to follow the order, he is committing a criminal offence and could result in a recall to prison or a fine.
Inspector James Wilson said: “Hill is a prolific offender who has brought misery to Chester city centre so I thank the courts for granting us this order against him.
“A Criminal Behaviour Order is just one of the tools that we can use to further protect communities from harm, and we will continue to use everything we can to protect those who live, work and visit the city.
“Hill will be under the CBO until 28 February 2028 and if he fails to comply with any of the conditions, he could face up to five years behind bars.”
Anyone who encounters Hill breaching any of the above restrictions is urged to contact Cheshire Police via the website or call 101, to report it.
