Local crime spree lands Mablethorpe man in jail

He has been arrested and charged a number of times

A man who raided a string of Mablethorpe shops has been sentenced to 26 weeks in prison.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Robert Grayson, 26, of Kings Court in Mablethorpe, after he failed to attend Boston Magistrates’ Court on February 19.

Grayson has since appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court on Friday, February 21, where he pleaded guilty to four offences of theft from a shop.

Grayson, who has been arrested and charged a number of times previously, was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison and a three year Criminal Behaviour Order.

Inspector Jacky Barnsley, Community Policing in Mablethorpe, said: “A Criminal Behaviour Order has been issued for Robert Grayson which will remain in place for three years.

“The CBO means he is banned from all retail premises in Mablethorpe other than a food store and a pharmacy.

“We have arrested and charged Grayson a number of times and he has caused a considerable crime spree in the town. I hope that he engages with partners to address his offending and takes the opportunities that will be offered.”
