Liam Senior, 37, of no fixed abode, was served with a CBO for a period of five years at Luton Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, January 15.

He was also jailed for two years, of which he must serve half, for three counts of burglary and two counts of theft.

PC Emma Underwood, who applied for the successful order, said: “Our force works closely with Bedford Borough Council and local business owners to make sure our town and high street is a safe place for our residents and their families.
