Hove shoplifter banned from parts of Brighton city centre

A prolific shoplifter has been banned from parts of Brighton city center after being found guilty of 23 counts of shoplifting.

Elliot Cahill, 31, of Clarendon Villas in Hove, has repeatedly targeted businesses in North Street and St James’s Street in Brighton over the course of several months.

He was issued a criminal conduct injunction (CBO) at Lewes Crown Court on Wednesday (27 September), imposing conditions aimed at preventing further offences.

The order prohibits Cahill from entering North Street in Brighton, and in particular The White Company on the same street, as well as the Co-op on St James’s Street.

He was also given a 12-week suspended sentence.

Cahill was identified as a repeat offender by a dedicated team working under the Operation Apprentice banner, which includes Sussex Police, Brighton and Hove’s Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) and Ambassadors from the Business Improvement District (BID).

Operation Apprentice is the police response to white-collar crime and anti-social behavior in Brighton and Hove, with officers working closely with the business community to identify areas and individuals of concern and work together to share information, gather intelligence and take affirmative action.

Inspector Ben Hearth of Brighton and Hove’s Neighborhood Policing Team said: “Shoplifting is not a victimless crime – alongside the financial aspect, shop workers routinely face abuse, threats and intimidation.

“We work closely with our partners in the business community through the Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP) to identify and bring prolific offenders to justice.

“Thanks to the help of several businesses in the city, including The White Company of North Street, we were able to present evidence to the court to obtain this criminal conduct order.

“CBOs are an important tool in limiting crime and any failure to comply will result in Cahill facing more serious consequences.

“We are extremely pleased with this result and are committed to continuing our work to combat this harmful crime alongside our city partners, including the BCRP & Business Improvement District.”
