Prolific offender Ben Collis Osbourne, 29, has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) following a series of thefts from local shops in Addlestone and Chertsey.
The order prevents him from entering particular shops.

Waitrose, Market Street
Tesco, Station Road
Iceland, Station Road

Co-op, Fordwater Road

It also prevents Collis Osbourne from carrying hypodermic needles in public, other than in a safe or enclosed bag or container, and prevents him from disposing of needles in any way other than in a designated needle bin.
The order will remain in place until 2 March 2023.
Runnymede Borough Commander Nick Pinkerton said “In addition to the thefts, Ben Collis Osbourne regularly displays aggressive and intimidating behaviour. He has a real negative impact on our local community and on how safe residents and workers feel in the areas he frequents. Evidence provided by the community plays a really important part in the court’s decision to grant a CBO so I am grateful to everyone who helped us obtain this order.
“We won’t tolerate this kind of behaviour and we hope that the CBO provides the local community – and in particular local shops - with some reassurance.”
Breaches of the conditions of a CBO can lead to arrest.
