Teenage gang face prison threat

Five gang members have been given anti-social behaviour orders after police linked them with about 300 offences.

The youths, aged between 16 and 22, are part of a group believed to be behind a crime spree in Plymouth, Devon.

The crew, known as the Honicknowle Defence Regiment, were involved in burglary, drugs and car theft.

Jake Allen, 18, Jed Crisp, 16, Adam Langdon, 19, Jonathan Webb, 22, and his brother Joshua Webb, 18, were told they face jail if they breach the orders.

Hoodie ban

They are barred from associating with each other under the terms of the order granted at Plymouth Magistrates Court.

They must also be at home between 2100 and 0700 for six months.

The interim anti-social behaviour order states that all but Crisp are banned from wearing identity-hiding hoodies in public.

And they are barred from meeting Nathan Danvers, 19, of Honicknowle, named in court as one of the "big cheeses" of the HDR.

The orders last until 21 May, when Plymouth magistrates will hear legal submissions for a full anti-social behaviour order.
