THE BROTHER of a man banned from visiting St Albans for five years has been made the subject of a similar order which severely restricts his movements.
In December Elton Bierman, aged 30, from Berkhamsted was given a five year anti-social behaviour order (ASBO).
Now his brother Murray Bierman, 29, of Wells Close, St Albans, has been given a five-year ASBO banning him from large parts of the city with certain exceptions.
His recent crimes include stealing cars, theft and criminal damage and the ban was imposed by St Albans magistrates on Monday.
Sergeant Debbie O'Malley said Murray Bierman's behaviour had a negative impact negatively on the quality of life for many St Albans residents. She added: "I hope this ASBO will encourage him to change his actions."
Bierman is allowed to use specified streets taking him as far as the chemist's shop in Normandy Road and he can also take his child to the recreation ground near his home and to a toddler group.
During the hours of 9am to 6pm he is allowed to visit the city centre or the railway station provided he sticks to prescribed routes.
Between April 13 and July 20 he is allowed to do Sunday car boot sales at the county's show ground in Redbourn between 4.30am and 5pm with a named driver using a white Transit van. He is also allowed to visit his parents in Park Street within the same time frame using a designated route.
Bierman is not allowed to drive or be a front seat passenger in any mechanical vehicle nor is he allowed to travel in or any vehicle with his brothers except for buses and trains with James Bierman. He is also not permitted to enter any premises from which he has been banned or remain on any premises from which he has been asked to leave.
If he breaches the terms of his ASBO he could be jailed for up to five years or fined or both.
