ASBO bans Ely man from begging
AN Ely man has been banned from begging or conning people into handing over money after police secured an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO).
Cambridge Magistrates’ Court imposed the order on Paul Green last Monday (November 21), to run for two years.
Green, 34, of Baker’s Corner, Ely, is banned from:
* Approaching any person, known or unknown, to beg or make false representation to obtain money or goods.
He pleaded guilty to one count of fraud by false representation, with a further 26 offences of fraud taken into consideration.

“Green would knock on doors, mainly in Ely, but in other places in Cambridgeshire too, and say his wife was ill and he needed to take her to hospital but had run out of petrol and money. He would then ask to borrow some money.
“It is very important that residents help us to enforce this order by informing us about any breaches.
“I hope it sends out a strong, clear message that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour.”
Anyone who sees Green breaching the order should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
