Restraining Order For Swimming Pool Underwear Thief

Recommended Posts

A Leominster man was last week found guilty of theft and handed a restraining order after an incident at the Halo Leisure Centre in January.


Daniel Dixon, 36, from High Street, Leominster was attending a public swimming session at the leisure centre on Wednesday 17 January when he secretly and intentionally stole underwear from a woman’s locker. He followed his victim and loitered in the same area as her until she left. His victim notified police of the incident and an investigation was started, resulting in his arrest.

Dixon was later charged and was found guilty at Hereford Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (7 May) where he was also sentenced.

He was ordered to pay £500 compensation, a victim surcharge of £114 and ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work as well as being handed a restraining order to stay away from his victim which lasts until 2027.

Police Constable Adam Stobbart, from Leominster Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “This incident was very upsetting and understandably, no one should have to experience this type of behaviour.

“It was concerning for them to not only have a such an intimate and personal item taken but to then feel scared and intimidated seeing the perpetrator and being followed.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the strength and resilience that the victim has shown throughout the investigation which help obtain this positive result.”
