On four separate occasions between November 14 and 21, Chapman entered Aylesbury town centre, which he was forbidden from doing as per his Criminal Behaviour Order.

Additionally on Friday, November 18, Chapman stole over £180-worth of meat from a supermarket in the town centre.

He was arrested on Monday (November 21) and charged the same day.

Investigating officer PC Thomas Cox, from Aylesbury Police Station, said: “Work by the Aylesbury Town Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team has led to the prosecution of Chapman.

“It is clear that he was intent on breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order and had stolen goods from a shop.

“I am satisfied that Chapman has been sentenced and hopefully this serves as a reminder that the team in Aylesbury will continue to investigate crime and bring offenders to justice.”
