Police said Karl Manley ‘brought misery’ to residents and businesses over a number of years
A ‘prolific’ criminal from Crewe has been jailed and banned from two retail parks for 10 years after he ‘brought misery’ to the town. Karl Manley, of Doddington Road, appeared at Crewe Magistrates Court on Monday (June 13) where he pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation, failing to provide a sample for a drugs test while in custody and obstructing a constable in the course of their duty.
The 42-year-old was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison during the hearing. He was also handed a 10-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO).
The order states that he is forbidden from entering two retail parks in Crewe. These are Grand Junction Retail Park on Grand Junction Way and the Dorothy Flude Retail Park on Mill Street.
PC Alex Barker said: “Manley is a prolific offender who has brought misery to Crewe residents and businesses over a number of years with his prolific offending.
“We hope that given his lengthy criminal behaviour order his reoffending will be stopped in its tracks. If Manley fails to adhere to the order, he faces going back to prison and could face up to five years.”
Anyone who encounters Manley breaching any of the above restrictions is urged to contact Cheshire Police at https://www.cheshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/soh/seen-or-heard/ or call 101, to report it.
