A MAN has been found guilty of causing criminal damage to Domino’s Pizza in Droitwich on August 2, 2019.

Patrick Healy, who now lives in Bournemouth, formally of Thatchers Place, Droitwich was identified on CCTV pasting derogatory posters about a staff member on the windows of the store.

The 59-year-old, who was not present at Kidderminster Magistrates Court and was tried in his absence, had digital copies of the posters on his computer when police searched his address.

Police said Healy is known for tormenting local residents by persistently making false and malicious allegations about them to police and other agencies.

He has been ordered to pay more than £1,300 in fines, court costs and compensation.

Following his conviction, Healy was slapped with a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) to prevent future anti-social behaviour.

The CBO contains 15 conditions and has no end date.

Healy is prohibited from entering Worcestershire, unless travelling through by train or car or contacting the police, unless a genuine emergency.

He is also not allowed to put posters or any other visual image where the public can see them. This includes on digital forums and social media pages.

And he cannot act in a threatening, insulting or intimidating manner to any resident or visitor to a specified street in Droitwich.

This includes but is not exclusive to shouting, swearing, staring or making inappropriate gestures.

Chief inspector Gareth Morgan said: “Healy’s actions have caused considerable distress within the community.

“CBOs are reserved for the most persistent offenders. They are a very effective way of combating anti-social behaviour and criminality because the conditions can be tailored to specifically address the offending behaviour.

“Officers have worked extremely hard to put these preventive measures in place to protect the community from further harm.”
