Two Rugeley men have been jailed for a spate of criminal damage offences in the town centre.

Justin Bouwer and Jake Jones

Justin Bouwer, 22, and Jake Jones, 25, were found guilty of multiple accounts of criminal damage on businesses in Rugeley between May 5 to 8 and May 11 to 13 at Stafford Crown Court on Thursday.

Bouwer, of Gorse Road, was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment for six instances of conspiracy to commit criminal damage and two counts of affray.

And Jones, of Hardie Avenue, was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment for five instances of conspiracy to commit criminal damage and one count of affray.

Both men have also been given a criminal behaviour order restricting their contact with each other and entry into Rugeley town centre for three years.

Special Sergeant Kevin Lee, from the Cannock Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "These sentences were as a result of a great investigation by our special constabulary and will hopefully help to reduce instances of anti-social behaviour in the town centre."
