A Banbury tenant believed to be responsible for anti-social behaviour and abuse spanning two and a half years has been evicted after a joint operation.
Thames Valley Police, Lambeth Housing Association and Cherwell District Council worked together to evict 44-year-old Sarah O’Hora from her home in Banesberie Close.
After numerous complaints regarding anti-social behaviour and a number of court cases and appeals, O’Hora was evicted by the association on September 3.
The property has been boarded up and the council has taken measures to obtain an ASB injunction against the tenant, which remained in place throughout the eviction process to protect the residents of the local area.
PC Kevin Yeoman said: “I have been in regular communication with those who live in the close and they tell me the behaviour of the occupant has had a detrimental effect on their personal health and quality of life. Local residents have informed me that they are now looking forward to some peace and quiet.”
Inspector Dave Hibbert, the Neighbourhood Inspector for the Cherwell Police area, said: “This is the culmination of a long and complex investigation carried out by PC Kevin Yeoman in partnership with the housing association, the council and of course the residents of the area, without whose help and evidence this result would not have been achieved.
“It underlines our determination that this sort of systematic anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and that we will do everything in our power to ensure persons acting in this manner are dealt with using the full range of powers available.”
