Faced with a barrage of complaints from residents, police in Chatteris have hauled in four youths and handed them a tough warning about their future behaviour.
A police spokesman revealed all four have agreed to sign an Acceptable Behaviour Contract (ABC) to steam their anti social acts.
Police have been working in partnership with agencies to identify the young people involved and speak to the offenders’ families.
ABCs are early interventions, generally following two warnings but prior to an anti-social behaviour order made against individuals who are perceived to be engaging in anti-social behaviour.
The spokesman said: “Hours of CCTV has been viewed and various offences identified.
