A Liverpool woman has been banned from touching parking meters after being convicted of theft.
Jade Joynson of Leeds Street, Liverpool, was given a three-year Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) at Liverpool Magistrates Court on Friday, September 22.
The now 25-year-old was convicted of attempting to steal money from a parking meter in Hawke Street on June 22 and the banning order stipulates that she cannot touch or interfere with any parking meter anywhere in Merseyside for three years.
Community Policing Constable Doreen Phillips said: “Offences against parking meters carry an enormous burden to the taxpayer which is unacceptable. For Liverpool City Council alone it is estimated to cost more than £100,000 per annum to repair damage to these machines.
“This banning order CBO granted against Joynson reflects her criminal behaviour and cost to repair the parking meters. Should she breach the order then she could be imprisoned.”Anyone with information on vehicle crime can to speak to local officers or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
