A man has been jailed for five months after breaching an order banning him from Uppingham or being drunk in public, and stealing from a shop.
Dean Parsons, 50, was given a three-year criminal anti-social behaviour order, or Crasbo, in August. But Parsons, formerly of Hornbeam Lane, Uppingham, failed to stick to the conditions. On Wednesday last week he was sentenced to five months in prison at Northamptonshire Magistrates’ Court for breaching the Crasbo, theft and sending a false message.
PC 1681 Adam Ploszczanski, one of the neighbourhood officers responsible for Uppingham, said: “Parsons received a suspended sentence and Crasbo in August. In September he entered a store in Corby and stole two bottles of alcohol. As he was intoxicated at the time he breached one of his Crasbo conditions.
“Parsons also rang 999 and claimed he was going to rob another store. As a result of his behaviour and blatant disregard of the conditions imposed on him by the courts he will now have to serve a custodial sentence.
“The three-year Crasbo will come into force again upon his release from prison and we would encourage anyone who witnesses any breaches of the conditions to contact the police immediately.”
Police said Parsons, now of Magpie Road, Norwich, was responsible for 25 of 82 police incidents in Uppingham in March this year.
The Crasbo prevents him from:
Entering Uppingham town (apart from to visit the doctors surgery and northern section of Ayston Road).
Being drunk or consuming alcohol in a public place (except licensed premises).
Being in possession of an open or opened vessel containing alcohol in a public place in Rutland.
Remaining in any shop, commercial or medical premises if asked to leave by staff.
Using threatening or abusive words or behaviour within the sight or hearing of a person likely to be caused harassment, alarm or distress when within the curtilage of any dwelling in Rutland.
Being with a named individual in a public place or place to which the public have access in Rutland.
The full list of crimes Parsons was convicted for in August, all of which took place this year, is as follows:
March 9 - Theft of two bottles of wine from a shop, pleaded guilty.
March 12 - Public order offence, pleaded guilty.
March 18 - Theft of three bottles of wine from a shop, pleaded guilty.

April 11 - Public order offence, pleaded guilty.
