Eaton Ford allotment rampage teen given one year restraining order
A TEENAGER who caused more than �400 worth of damage to an allotment in Eaton Ford has been given a restraining order.
The 17-year-old appeared at Huntingdon Magistrates Court on Monday charged with criminal damage and arson at an elderly man’s allotment in River Road.
The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and another 16-year-old, smashed up the victim’s garden shed, destroyed his plants and set fire to his shed between May, 1 and 2.
Forensics led officers to the 17 year old, who pleaded guilty to the criminal damage.
He was sentenced to a restraining order for 12 months which covers the area of the allotments and the surrounding vicinity including the local skate park.
He was also given a youth referral order for nine months, 15 hours reparation and ordered to pay �100 compensation to the victim.
The other boy was issued with a final warning.
