A 31 year old man from Sklemersdale has been given a Criminal Behaviour Order after being involved in drug related activity and anti-social behaviour in the area.


Dale Baker, 31, of Abbeywood, Skelmersdale, was handed the order at Ormskirk Magistrates Court on 17 November following a successful application by the CPS and Op Nemises officers, a team dedicated to disrupting and dismantling those involved in organised crime and anti-social behaviour.


The order is in place until further notice and prohibits him from a number of things:


  • Acting or inciting others to act in an anti-social manner
  • Being in a vehicle with more than one other person within West Lancashire
  • Being in possession of any equipment for the use in the manufacture, cultivation, administration or distribution of any class A or B drugs or legal high substances
  • Being in possession of a mobile phone not registered to him


PS 3926 Bernie Coburn of Op Nemesis Skelmersdale said: “Baker has been involved in drug related activity and anti-social behaviour that has caused much annoyance and upset to the community in this area.


“I hope that our successful application for this order will go some way to help reassure residents within Skelmersdale that we do not and will not tolerate this sort of behaviour. I would urge the community to report any breaches of the order to us as soon as possible.”
