A prolific criminal described as having blighted Blackpool with his bad behaviour has breached a Criminal Anti-Social Behaviour Order (CRASBO) one week after he was put on it.
Glenn Stacey has 330 previous convictions, which include crimes such as stealing from shops, threatening behaviour and alcohol-related offences.
His behaviour, particularly towards shop staff, was said to be aggressive, intimidating and exhausting to deal with. Businesses had already imposed their own bans on Stacey prohibiting him from entering 85 town centre shops.
Stacey, 54, of Victory Road, Blackpool, pleaded guilty to breaching the CRASBO.
He was fined £65 with £20 victims’ surcharge, but Blackpool magistrates said the two days he had already spent in custody would serve instead of the financial penalties.
Presiding magistrate Suzan Simpkin told Stacey: “You have an appalling record with numerous previous convictions. If you breach the order again you could find yourself in custody.”
