A MAN banned from begging or going into any shop in Huddersfield town centre broke it on the day he appeared in the Examiner.
Police had issued a photograph of Dean Grundell who they say is causing them major problems in Huddersfield.
They are asking people to be on the look-out for the 38-year-old from Aspley – a persistent shoplifter and beggar – who is now banned from begging across the whole of Kirklees and shops in Huddersfield town centre.
A police spokesman had said: “Enough is enough.
“He was served with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) that now means he is banned from begging anywhere in Kirklees but it is not working.
“If people do see him begging or going into shops in the centre of Huddersfield they should contact the police.
“We will take action and he may well end up in prison.”
But hours after the paper was published Grundell turned up at the Examiner shop on John William Street and was abusive to staff inside shortly before 3pm yesterday.
They became so concerned at his behaviour they alerted police.
But officers simply spoke to him outside and then let him on his way.
A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “We were called to reports of a disturbance. Officers spoke to a man and he left the scene. He was not arrested.’’
Grundell is also banned from entering Huddersfield train station and St George’s Square.
He was handed the two-year ban by magistrates in Huddersfield in May after numerous abusive incidents.
If he is found to have broken the terms of his ASBO, which lasts until May 2013, Grundell can be arrested and could face imprisonment.
