Aiden Stent, aged 18, of Matlock Crescent, Cheam, was issued with the Order, which seeks to restrict his behaviour, at Croydon Crown Court on Friday, 18 March.
Its conditions forbid Stent from:
- associating with seven named individuals - five men and two women - aged 18-24 - in any public place in Greater London
- being in possession of a pedal cycle in any public place in Greater London
- entering Chatsworth Road, Sutton
- entering the area around Limes College
- entering Fairlands Park and Cheam Park Recreation Ground
Stent received the Order after he had pleaded guilty at the same Court on the same day to possession of Class A and Class B drugs with intent to supply in Manor Park, Sutton, on Wednesday, 17 June 2015 when plain clothes officers stopped Stent who was on a bicycle at the time. Stent was found in possession of five small bags of cannabis and five small bags of cocaine. For this offence he received two years' imprisonment suspended for two years.
In Court the Judge told Stent that he had a 'little enterprise' going on and had been doing his drug deals by getting around on his bicycle.
The CBO was the result of extensive work by Sutton's Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, Sutton Schools Unit, and Cheam Safer Neighbourhoods Policing Team. The Anti-Social Behaviour Unit, which is based at Sutton Police station, is managed by the Safer Sutton Partnership Service, Met Police and Sutton Housing Partnership.
PC Mel Cooney, who is acting Sgt in Sutton's ASBU Unit, said: "Criminal Behaviour Orders are an opportunity for offenders to mend their ways and deter them from crime.
"However, we can reassure the public that we monitor all such Orders closely to see whether they are working. Any breaches will be dealt with robustly, which in this case could result in the offender being sentenced to two years in prison."
