AN “alcoholic pest” has been handed an interim ASBO in a bid to stop him drinking, begging and urinating in Wisbech town centre.
King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court issued the order against 43-year-old Vincent Gabriel Logue last week. It will remain in place until August 17, when a decision on whether to make it a full order will be taken.
Logue is prohibited from begging, being verbally abusive, urinating in public, being in possession of alcohol in Wisbech town centre or being drunk in a public place.
Sergeant Dave Bax said: “Logue has been an alcoholic pest. He begs, gets drunk and then causes anti-social behaviour to people.
“In the short time he was initially in Wisbech, he annoyed and harassed people, asking for money, and then if someone said no, he would verbally abuse them.
“His problem is alcohol and some local off-licences were selling to him even though he stunk of booze.
“He acts in exactly the same manner in Peterborough and is a nuisance. His activities could spoil the average family day out and people often gave him money just to get rid of him.”
Sgt Bax urged anyone who sees Logue breaching the conditions of the order, in Wisbech or Peterborough, to contact the police.
