Two year ASBO for Honiton teen

Ashley Brennan handed order by magistrates in Exeter.

A TEENAGER from Honiton has been given a two year Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) by magistrates in Exeter.

Police have welcomed the action against Ashley Brennan, 18, of no fixed abode.

The ASBO was granted after Brennan was convicted of Section 5 public order offences, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and possession of Class B drugs.

Acting Sergeant Matthew Sinker said: “This has been the result of a lot of hard work by officers from Honiton police station across all departments, including neighbourhood, CID and response.

“It represents another success in taking the troublemakers to task and showing that there are heavy consequences for the perpetrators of crime and anti-social behaviour.

“I would pay tribute to PC Gemma Siszcuk, of the Honiton neighbourhood team, for her work in co-ordinating the evidence to bring about this excellent result.”
