During this period Pounder cannot enter Buckingham town centre or have any open vessel of any alcoholic beverage in a public place unless customer at a licensed premises.

Already, Thames Valley Police has said Pounder breached the order last Thursday (11 April). Officers found him in Northend Square without, what they have described as a reasonable excuse.

On 18 September, 2023, he was seen stalking a man in his 70s who withdrew some cash from an ATM in Market Square and entered a shop.

When the victim left the shop, Pounder followed him to his van and stole his wallet from his shorts pocket and ran off, according to police reports.

Pounder also dumped the wallet, which held prize possessions belonging to the victim, down a drain.

Thames Valley Police has confirmed an investigating officer found and returned the wallet to the victim at a later date.

Pounder was arrested on 4 October and charged the following day.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Emily King, from the Aylesbury Vale Priority Crime Team, said: “I am pleased that Jack Pounder has been put before the courts and sentenced for breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order.

“This CBO should stop his offending and will prevent him from entering Buckingham and drinking alcohol in public.

“Should he breach the CBO conditions again, or commit any other offences, he will be brought back before the courts.

“Pounder was rightly given a CBO having meticulously targeted a vulnerable victim, and his prolific offending has had a detrimental impact to the community in Buckingham.
