Man receives Criminal Behaviour Order

Wednesday, December 20, 2023

A man has been issued with a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order for persistent shop-lifting – after joint action was taken by Wakefield Council and West Yorkshire Police.

Timothy Norman Newall, aged 30, of Cannon Street, Glasshoughton, Castleford, was given the Order at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on 11 December 2023.

We are pleased the Court has granted this Criminal Behaviour Order. We will take firm action against people who behave in a way that is unacceptable and anti-social.

Our joint action with West Yorkshire Police demonstrates that we do not tolerate this behaviour, which has no place in our district.

The Criminal Behaviour Order prevents Mr Newall from entering Castleford town centre except when attending pre-arranged appointments such as with solicitors, court, police, dentist, doctor or as directed by the court, when he must take a direct route to and from the appointment and leave the area immediately or as soon as practicably possible after the appointment ends.

He must also not enter Boots, Kirkgate, Wakefield; Sainsbury's, Ings Road, Wakefield; Asda, Asdale Road, Wakefield and Sainsbury's, Smawthorne Lane, Castleford or remain on any retail premises in the Wakefield district if asked to leave by staff.

The CBO remains in force until midnight 10 December 2026. Breach of a Criminal Behaviour Order is an offence and could result in a prison sentence.

Between the dates of 30 November 2023 and 9 December 2023 he stole over £370 worth of goods including chocolate, meat and gift sets from Sainsbury's on Smawthorne Lane, and both Bodycare and Iceland in Carlton Lanes Shopping Centre, Castleford.

Inspector Glen Costello, who leads the Wakefield East Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This action has been taken against Newall after he persistently targeted businesses in the Castleford area. 

“He has shown no willingness to change his offending behaviour and now has to abide by the terms and conditions of this Criminal Behaviour Order, which, if breached, could result in him going to prison. 

“It should also serve as a reminder to others that police and partners will always take action against those who blight our neighbourhoods through their criminal actions. 

“Anyone who is seen to be breaching the terms of a Criminal Behaviour Order can be reported by calling 101, or using the LiveChat facility on the West Yorkshire Police website.”
