Nuisance evicted after persistently being anti-social

Malvern Editorial 4th Jun, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A PERSISTENT Malvern offender who caused ‘significant harm’ to her neighbours has been evicted from her home.

Hayley Rowberry was ousted from her Atyeo Close property last Wednesday (May 27) after anti-social complaints of ‘late night noisy parties and drunken behaviour’ made against her led to a county court being made against her.

Residents in the area spoke out against the 34-year-old and helped PC Dave Wise, of Pickersleigh Safer Neighbourhood Team, and Fortis Living present evidence at Worcester County Court in a possession hearing in September last year.

The hearing gave her a stay of execution when a suspended possession order was made on the home but since that time Rowberry, who also has a history of thefts, assaults and drug offences, was reported for ‘sporadic incidents’ of anti-social behaviour and on March 18 officers found a quantity of what is believed to be heroin at the property.

Several people still remain on bail for that offence.

PC Wise said: “This resident’s behaviour has caused significant harm to the people of Malvern over a number of years and we are grateful to those members of the community who have been brave in coming forward to provide the evidence that has helped secure this eviction.

“This is another example of Malvern Hills Safer Neighbourhood Team’s strong working relationship with Fortis Living and the latest in a series of successful evictions that keep Malvern a safe and low-crime area.”

Residents who suspect drug offences or anti-social behaviour can contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or by calling Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
