Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


An Isle of Wight man has been sentenced for breaching a Criminal Behaviour Order and shoplifting.

Bradley Kyle Sparshot, aged 29 years, was handed the CBO on 14th October this year at Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court.

The CBO prohibited him from causing a nuisance or annoyance to the public whilst under the influence of drink or drugs, from drinking alcohol in public whilst behaving anti-socially, and from entering certain areas of Ryde and Newport.

This followed a pattern of behaviour in which Sparshot was suspected of being involved in anti-social behaviour and associated criminality, including shoplifting and drug use.

This offending was used as evidence in court to secure the CBO.

Sparshot then breached this by entering areas in Ryde, which he was banned from visiting, on 20, 22 and 25 October.

He was also charged with two counts of shoplifting after stealing two packs of drawer liners from Gibbs and Gurnell in Union Street, Ryde, and stealing meat from the Co-op in Anglesea Street in Ryde. Both incidents took place on 22 October.

Appearing at Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 17 December, Sparshot pleaded guilty to four counts of breaching his CBO, and two counts of shoplifting. He was sentenced to a community order in which he must engage in a rehabilitation activity requirement with a view to stopping him from re-offending.

Inspector Adam Henderson-Parish said: “Bradley Sparshot has persistently caused issues in the Ryde and Newport areas of the Island.

“Being able to secure a CBO is a very positive step forward for the community, as it allows us to impose restrictions on people due to their behaviour and in circumstances where the evidence to a pursue a criminal conviction is not always available.

“These sorts of orders do not make us complacent, however, and we are aware that there are still those who will show no regard to the rules.

“We encourage people affected by nuisance and anti-social behaviour to report this to us so we can develop a picture of the issues affecting you, and take action against those responsible.”
