Carlisle burglary gang get Asbos on release from jail

A gang of thieves who targeted rural communities have left prison and been greeted with anti- social behaviour orders – Asbos.

In 2011 the four men from Carlisle, who spent eight months focusing on farms and businesses, were jailed for a number of offences including theft, burglary and conspiracy.

The Asbos were imposed at the time of sentencing and were designed to kick in when they left prison.

These orders ban them from being found on any private land or building outside the city boundaries without prior permission.

If they are caught breaking these conditions, they can face legal action.

They are designed to stop the gang causing “harassment, alarm or distress” to people in Cumbria. This is the first time Asbos like these have been put into effect in the county.

The ringleader – 49-year-old Mark Robinson, of Thompson Street, off London Road, who was jailed for seven different offences – will be subject to a 10-year order.

Alistair Tuddenham, 47, of Grierson Road, Upperby, who was the gang’s main driver and Paul Gibbons, 44, of Trafalgar Street, Denton Holme, will be subject to the Asbo for the same amount of time.

Another gang member Scott Rumney Mulholland, 26, was given a five-year Asbo.

PC Kath Paterson, for Carlisle East’s neighbourhood policing team, said: “These Asbos were specifically designed to protect the residents in our communities from these criminals.”

“No one should live in fear of being a victim of crime at the hands of this gang and these Asbos should add another layer of protection for those living in rural areas,” he added.

Anyone who sees a member of the gang breaking their conditions can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
