Man from Haverhill pleads guilty to stealing shrubs

A man from Haverhill has been found guilty of stealing plants from a shrub bed recently improved by Havebury as part of a refurbishment project.

Havebury’s recent ‘Clements estate spring clean’ in Haverhill, identified shrub beds as an area for action. A number of ‘Red Robin’ shrubs were stolen just hours after being planted.

The incident was investigated by the Police, who later identified a local man who pleaded guilty to the stealing of 11 shrubs. He was prosecuted and ordered to pay a compensation of £65 to cover the costs of replacing the shrub.

John Feveyear, Neighbourhood Communities Co-ordinator at Havebury Housing Partnership, said: “It’s great to see that the person responsible for the shrub bed damage has been rightfully prosecuted and ordered to pay compensation. We know residents want to see a clean, attractive neighbourhood.”

“We will continue to invest in our neighbourhoods across Haverhill and Bury St Edmunds, but we will not tolerate unlawful and anti-social actions made to our property and will take the appropriate action where necessary.”
