Man handed three year ban from Liverpool City Centre

A 36-year-old man has been issued with a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) following theft from a parking meter in Liverpool city centre.

Kenneth Cartwright of Toxteth was issued the order at Liverpool Magistrates Court on 23 December which runs until 23 December 2025.

The CBO prohibits him from:

Not to entering the area bounded by and including Dale Street (Queensway) up to and including Water Street, The Strand, Strand Street, Liver Street; Paradise Street, Duke Street, Upper Duke Street, Berry Street, Leece Street, Renshaw Street, Brownlow Hill, Copperas Hill, Russel Street Seymour Street, London Road, Lime Street, St George’s Place, St John’s Lane and Old Haymarket.

Community Policing Sergeant Charles Cottier said, “This is another great result for the communities we serve.

“Cartwright was convicted of attempt theft from a parking meter on 23rd December. This is no minor offence as the annual costs to the local authority is estimated to be over £100,000 per annum to fix these machines.

“The Local Policing team will continue to seek similar orders against those who seek to cause harm to our communities.

“Criminal Behaviour Orders are extremely effective and should Cartwright breach the conditions of this order, he will be arrested, returned to court and may be jailed.”
