A 43-year-old man from Milton Keynes has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) for multiple bicycle thefts.

Adam Bamber, of Ramsons Avenue, Milton Keynes, appeared at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday July 4th, and received a CBO following convictions for stealing four bicycles and dishonestly receiving stolen goods, namely a bicycle.

The order has been put in place for two years. Under the order, Bamber is prevented from attending any public bicycle sheds or bicycle racks within the borough of Milton Keynes.

In addition to the initial order, a Community Order was also made and Bamber must attend treatment for drug dependency for a period of nine months.

PC David Smith of the Problem Solving Team based at Milton Keynes police station said, “This CBO was sought as a result of Adam Bamber persistently acting in an anti-social manner.

“Breaching any of the conditions could result in a fine or imprisonment.

“I hope this order is seen as a warning to others and shows that behaviour like this will not be tolerated.”
