Clevedon teen given ASBO

A CLEVEDON teen has been handed an antisocial behaviour order after committing a string of offences in the town.

Jordan Bowers was given the order by North Somerset magistrates on September 27 following months of work to prepare an application by Clevedon’s police team.

The 16-year-old of Hillview Avenue now has to abide by a set of strict rules for the next two years or risk facing further court action.

The conditions of the ASBO mean Bowers must not:

- Act or incite others in an antisocial manner.

- Use threatening, intimidating or abusive behaviour toward any resident in Clevedon.

- Be in possession of alcohol, drugs or other substances such as glue or aerosol sprays in Clevedon.

PC Matt Christie from Clevedon Police Station said: “This has been ongoing for about six months.

“We have been trying to target certain individuals that we identified as causing antisocial behaviour in the town.

“This comes after a string of antisocial behaviour incidents including damage and theft.

“With this ASBO we are trying to set out guidelines which he can follow to try to stop him from committing more crime and causing more antisocial behaviour in the town.”
