Main article content
Martin Conlon, 61 of Whyteleafe Road, Caterham has been fined after pleading guilty to a public order offence.
In September this year, the Tandridge Neighbourhood Team was made aware of an ongoing issue with Conlon and reports of him using offensive and abusive language. Neighbourhood Officers, including an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Builder, used these reports to build a case against Conlon and prevent any further distress to residents in Caterham.
Conlon attended a voluntary interview on 14 September.
After being summonsed with using threatening, abuse or insulting words to cause distress, Conlon pleaded guilty and appeared at Staines Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday (15 December), where he was ordered to pay a total fine of £234 including a fine, victim surcharge and prosecution charges.
Sergeant Guy Horner said: “We will not tolerate anti-social behaviour in our borough and will pursue those who bring upset and misery to the wider county.
“We want to keep this borough safe and I would like to encourage you to contact us if you’re experiencing such issues. The Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Team is committed to the community and wants to work with you.”
