Man jailed for breaching Criminal Behaviour Order

11 May 2021

A man who was banned from carrying out work for elderly and vulnerable people has been jailed after breaching the conditions of the court order.

Darren Moore, 54, address unknown, was handed a criminal behaviour order (CBO) in 2016. It prohibited him from approaching elderly or vulnerable people and charging them for work on their homes or entering into any kind of financial transaction with them.

On 6 March, officers responded to concerns for a vulnerable man in Cambridge and arrived to find Moore at his home. On 7 April, officers returned and discovered Moore was there once again.

This time they also discovered the vulnerable man had transferred £2950 to Moore - £650 for a new carpet he had fitted and the rest money he owed.

Moore pleaded guilty to four counts of breaching his CBO and was sentenced to nine months in prison at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday (10 May)

PC Eleanor Bacchus, who investigated, said: “I am glad we have been able to get justice for the victim in this case.

“Criminal Behaviour Orders help us safeguard vulnerable people who are at risk of fraud and exploitation and this shows that we will follow up on these orders to ensure offenders are abiding by their conditions.”
