Woman receives Criminal Behaviour Order

Wednesday, February 07, 2024

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

Jade Moore, aged 38, of no fixed address, was given a two-year Criminal Behaviour Order and sentenced to 32 weeks in prison at Leeds Magistrates’ Court on 23 January 2024.

The Criminal Behaviour Order prevents Jade Moore from entering:

•    Aldi at Barnsley Road, South Elmsall
•    Asda, at Barnsley Road, South Elmsall 
•    Iceland, 1 Pear Tree Lane, Hemsworth
•    Today’s Store, Ash Grove, South Elmsall
•    B&M Market Street, Hemsworth
•    Home Bargains, Plimsoll Street, Hemsworth
•    Ackworth Service Station, Barnsley Road, Ackworth 

She must also not remain on any retail premises in the Wakefield Metropolitan District area if asked to leave by staff. 

The CBO remains in force until midnight 22 January 2026.

“The granting of this Criminal Behaviour Order shows 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.”

Inspector Glen Costello, of Wakefield East Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We know a small group of people can have a huge impact on retailers in our town centres. The use of Criminal Behaviour Orders is just one example of the work we are doing with our partners to take action against those who seek to cause harm in our communities through criminal and anti-social behaviour.  
“This CBO puts a number of conditions on this individual. Breaching these conditions is a serious offence which can result in a prison sentence. I would urge anyone who witnesses any potential breach of these conditions to report it.”
