Manchester menace’s reign of terror ends after being slapped with CRASBO for string of crimes

By Andrew Locke

A prolific teenage thief who has caused chaos for police and residents after a string of Harpurhey crimes has finally been caught and slapped with a three-year anti-social behaviour order on conviction (CRASBO).

Menacing Loui Dyer, 18, pleaded guilty to theft after stealing from the front counter of a family-run shop when the shopkeeper was not looking in October 2012.

In addition to his CRASBO, Dyer has been banned from entering certain parts of Harpurhey and Moston which would lead to a jail sentence if broken.

Councillor Bernard Priest, Manchester City Council’s executive member for neighbourhood services, said: “The police and council work very closely together across Manchester’s neighbourhoods and this is an excellent example of what this cooperation can achieve.”

The CRASBO also came with a 21-day detention and training order at a young offender institute.

Dyer, of Princedom Street, has also previously been sentenced to unpaid work in May 2012 and has caused trouble numerous times before the theft of a charity collection box as well as being caught carrying nunchucks in a public place.

Councillor Priest added: “Dyer is a prolific criminal who has a long record of causing problems in Harpurhey and Moston.

“This order will make life safer for residents of those areas and I’d urge anyone living there to contact the police immediately if they see him breaking any of these conditions.”
