Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for Pill, Richard Blakemore, said:
“We are delighted with today’s result. This sends a strong message to any would-be trouble makers that you will be arrested and you will face the consequences of your actions.
“We are continuing our zero-tolerance approach to this kind of reckless behaviour and with the festive period, just around the corner, we are asking everyone to think about their actions. What seems like harmless fun can have huge repercussions. Do not start the new year with a criminal record!”
