A 24-YEAR-OLD man is prohibited from entering any retail outlets in a town centre after being handed a two year Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO).

Simon Speer, from Ditchmore Lane, Stevenage, was given the ASBO by Stevenage Magistrates' Court on October 24 after being sentenced to 21 weeks imprisonment for two thefts and taking a vehicle without consent.

Under the order, Speer is prohibited from entering any retail outlets in Stevenage town centre, entering any retail outlets on the town's Roaring Meg retail park, including Asda at Monkswood Way, and entering Waitrose on the High Street in Stevenage Old Town.

Pc Jane Karajan said: "Speer has been known to police for a while as a persistent trouble-maker.
