A Devizes man has been given a suspended prison sentence after breaching an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction.

Neil Kibble, 48, of Century Close, was given the injunction by the courts in August after complaints by the local community which centred around anti-social behaviour and drug use at his address.

The injunction was obtained as a result of partnership work between Wiltshire Police and Aster.

It ordered that Kibble must not engage in conduct that causes harassment, alarm or distress, or cause housing related nuisance or annoyance. He was also banned from possessing and storing any firearms or explosive devices, causing any damage to his home address, contacting anyone who gave evidence in court during the proceedings and allowing any illegal drugs in his property or vicinity and causing noise nuisance.

Sgt Pete Foster, of the East Wiltshire Community Policing Team, said: “Kibble has continued to breach this injunction and his behaviour has led to further complaints from local residents.

“His behaviour will not be tolerated. Through excellent partnership working with the housing association Aster, we were able to initially obtain the injunction, and I am pleased that the courts have now seen fit to hand out a sentence to Kibble that reflects the concerns of the community.

“We understand that behaviour like this can have a really negative impact on a local neighbourhood and we would encourage anyone experiencing these issues to report it to 101 so we can deal with it appropriately.”

Kibble, who was issued with the 28-day suspended sentence on 24 September at Swindon Magistrates Court, also appeared for a separate offence of possession of a class B drug and was ordered to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work.
