Woman issued with Criminal Behaviour Order after smearing dog faeces on neighbour’s door

Maxine Rees

AN Ettington woman has been issued with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) after admitting smearing dog faeces over a neighbour’s door.

Maxine Rees, aged 55, of Ferguson Close, Ettington, also admitted throwing paint over the same neighbour’s property and over the car of another neighbour. All the incidents occurred in February.

She also admitted leaving without paying for taxi rides following incidents in December and March.

Appearing at Warwickshire Magistrates’ Court on Friday (27 July), Rees pleaded guilty to three counts of causing criminal damage and two counts of making off without payment.

She was issued with a CBO forbidding her from contacting, intimidating, or causing harm, alarm or distress to any residents in Ferguson Close, Ettington. Breach of the order could lead to her arrest.

Rees was also ordered to do 200 hours unpaid work, pay compensation to the victims, and given a one year community order.

PC Craig Purcell from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Rees has caused great distress to the residents on Ferguson Close. This CBO will help to protect them from her behaviour and any breach could result in her being arrested again.”

    So the local Rozzers have the time to arrest people for smearing dog faeces over a neighbour’s door. We don’t know the provocation for these incidents, yet.
    Nice to know how much spare time the local rozzers have

    Whatever the provocation there can be no justification for such anti social behaviour. Or in throwing paint and avoiding paying taxi fares. This woman sounds like a nightmare. Well done the Rozzers (haven’t heard that term since the 1960s) for enforcing the law.

      Nigel I don’t doubt that avoiding taxi fares on the surface is theft that should be followed up.
      The rest is just social nuisance that should not need Peelers to sort out
