A man from Stroud has received an anti-social behaviour injunction following his drunken behaviour in and around the town.
Martyn Tandy, aged 64, was served with the injunction last Thursday (9 March) following a hearing at Cheltenham and Gloucester County Court.
The injunction followed numerous complaints from the public and local businesses reporting drunken, abusive and anti-social behaviour from Tandy.
The order imposed by the court forbids Tandy from:
- Engaging in conduct which causes or is capable of causing alarm, or harassment or distress to any person living in or visiting Stroud
- Being in a public place drinking alcohol or being in possession of an open bottle or open can or cup containing alcohol within the town of Stroud
PC Hurst from the Stroud Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Martin Tandy has been a prolific offender within Stroud Town centre over recent years.
“He has caused disruption to the local businesses and distress to visitors to the town. We have tried to assist him in getting support around his drinking but he has not engaged. This order was sought in an effort to stop Tandy from continuing in this manner.
“Anyone who sees Tandy breaching any of the conditions of the injunction is asked to assist police by contacting us with the details of the breach so that it can be dealt with robustly.”
The order will remain in place until 4pm on 6 March 2024 and breaches can be reported by calling police on 101 or the Solace team on 01452 753560.
