A teenage thug threatened to blow up a policeman’s house - then “post his feet to his wife”.
The sickening threats were made by a 15-year-old boy who was caught flouting his anti-social behaviour order.
The teenager appeared before Preston Youth Court where he was accused of breaching the terms of his ASBO by using threatening anti-social behaviour. It followed an incident on May 3 this year.
He was also accused of breaching the order again as three days after making the vicious threats, he was seen in the area of the exclusion zone specified in his ASBO, which bans him from a Ribbleton estate.
He denied both offences but was found guilty after a trial. The offences happened less than two months after he was given an ASBO.
The youngster was handed the court order earlier this year after magistrates heard he had caused repeated anti-social behaviour over the past two years including disorder, abusing residents and violent behaviour.
Police handed out 350 leaflets to shops, businesses and residents informing them that he is banned from entering the estate, except for a clearly identified route to and from his home address.
He is also banned from causing harassment, alarm or distress and from associating with five other teenage boys.
The three year order will remain in place until March 6 2016.
Today Coun Brian Rollo, who represents Ribbleton, said: “I have known the boy since he was at primary school and he used to be - and still is - a nice lad to talk to.
“However, he does have problems and issues with his family background.”
He added: “The ASBO was a last resort to try and keep him on the straight and narrow.
“It’s a disappointment that it has not straightened him out.”
The court heard he was already subject to youth rehabilitation orders for four assaults and failing to surrender to custody and he was re-sentenced to another youth rehabilitation order.
It will include supervision for one month, and he must also pay a £15 victim surcharge.
