A 16-year-old boy has been banned for entering Ipswich unsupervised for 18 months after pleading guilty to a series of vehicle crimes in the town.

The teenager, who cannot be named due to his age, was handed a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) after appearing at Ipswich Youth Court on Thursday, June 15.

He was sentenced after pleading guilty to the theft of a motor vehicle and aggravated vehicle taking after stealing mopeds in the Ipswich area – one in April, the other in May this year.

He also admitted four charges relating to driving without a licence or insurance.

His sentence includes an 18-month community order, a three-month curfew between 7pm and 8am, a driving disqualification for 18 months and the Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) which prohibits him from entering Ipswich unless he is under the supervision of a parent or foster carer.

The CBO also bans the boy from being in possession of any motorised vehicle in a public place unless he is the legal owner and legally entitled to drive it.

The vehicle must also be registered with the DVLA and must have road tax and insurance.

He was also told he must not associate with three named individuals and pay £200 compensation.
