Officers were patrolling in Stanwell in January this year when they spotted Burton, a well-known face and subject of a criminal behaviour order (CBO) which allows us to take steps to deal with his behaviour.
When he saw police, Burton ran away. In hot pursuit, the officers chased him down an alleyway and saw him take a phone from his pocket and launch it into nearby bushes. They quickly caught him, and with Burton safely detained, returned to scour the hedges where they found a Nokia burner style phone. Burton was found to have a second device on him, providing clear evidence that he had breached a condition of his CBO that prohibited him from having more than one phone.
After his arrest, a search in custody revealed 32 wraps of drugs – suspected to be cocaine and heroin - in Burton’s underwear and he was charged with supply of class A and B drugs and with breaching his CBO.
Spelthorne Borough Commander Maxine Cilia says: “Having Burton off our streets for some significant time is good news. I hope it demonstrates how seriously we take targeting repeat offenders who inflict misery on others with their behaviour. We will not tolerate people causing harm or distress in our community in Spelthorne.”
