Detective Constable Pete Ryland from the Integrated Offender Management team said: “We have successfully placed a CBO prohibiting Mr Morgan from entering a number of premises in Pershore and behaving in an anti-social manner.

“This was granted after a series of incidents including theft, threatening, intimidating behaviour and disturbances caused by Morgan at his address and within the Town. I hope the conviction and CBO provides reassurance to local retailers and local residents that police will take positive action to make our communities safer.”

Morgan was previously handed a community order after he admitted stealing perfume in Worcester because of threats from drug dealers.

He appeared before magistrates in Worcester on August 29 charged with stealing £66 worth of Jimmy Choo perfume from Debenhams in the city on August 13.
