A man convicted of five counts of burglary has been given a 10 year ban from entering the City of London, following recommendations from the City of London Police.
Neville Patrick Stanbury, age 52 from Old Kent Road, Southwark, London, was sentenced to three years community supervision, six months drug rehabilitation and 180 hours of unpaid work at the Inner London Crown Court on 6 December 2021.
Additionally, the City of London Police applied for a 10 year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO), which was granted by the judge on the same day as his sentencing, preventing him from:
Tailgating any person into any building to which he does not normally have access or authority.
Impersonating any employee, agent or officer of any company, charity, or public body where he is not an official, verifiable, employed member of staff or contractor.
Entering the area designated by the City of London which is identified by any road name with a City of London crest and EC1, 2, 3, 4 post codes.
Taking part in the disposal or sale of electronic tablet devices and or laptop computers; whether directly or indirectly.
Stanbury is also required to register any laptop, desktop computer, or tablet device in his possession and or ownership on www.immobolise.com , with the exception of any mobile phone, computer or tablet device registered to a verifiable company and/or organisation, used by him for work purposes, and/or in the course of his legitimate gainful employment.
Acting Detective Sergeant Kirsty Richardson of the City of London Police said:
“We are pleased that His Honour Judge Ian Darling was able to approve the Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) recommended by the City of London Police, preventing Stanbury from targeting further premises in the Square Mile. Stanbury is a prolific criminal, and his most recent offences, which included theft of electrical equipment from five premises across the City, cost local businesses almost £40,000 in damages and replacement of property.
“Theft from large organisations is not a victimless crime. Businesses have been hit hard during the COVID-19 pandemic, and criminal activity such as this could be a breaking point for many. We will actively seek to use CBOs to effectively protect the City and the people who live, work and visit here.”
Stanbury was arrested in October 2021, and later pleaded guilty to all five offences of burglary from a number of business premises across the City. He is required to attend court every six weeks so that the judge can monitor his progress and will not be permitted to enter the City of London until December 2031, when his CBO is completed.
