To report her

Have an acquaintance who I heard a recently had been done for numerous counts of shop lifting. It was more rumors at first but now its in the papers.
I have heard that they are subject to a curfew order. I always thought that they were from 6pm-6am. Yet the person has been repeatedly seen miles from home well after 6pm.

Am i being unreasonable to shop them, also how does one fo about it? Just feel that these things need to be taken seriously otherwise it could be a slippery slope to more offences.

Curfew orders are not standard, they can have different restrictions depending on what the judge feels is best. I'd keep out of it if I were you.

Why would you want to report her that seems very unkind if she has a tag "they" will know is isn't at home

Not sure where you are but in Scotland certainly curfew can be from whenever the court makes it. Usually they start at 10pm but it depends what they want to prevent. In a shoplifting case I would more likely expect to see a ban on entering shops. I would want to be clear on the order and its times before reporting her. Again, here, it would be a police matter but if you have no idea what the order actually says then I doubt they would follow it up.

I agree, curfew orders are not standard times.

I'm inclined to advise you to mind your own business.

Heard that for some reason they couldnt fit a tag.

Thank you for opinions. I shall indeed mind my own business. Just wanted to see what consensus was. Guess it shows how pointless curfew orders are if they are disregarded by offenders and the police are unlikely to follow it up.
Just seems sad as they are not even in 20s but have such a disregard for the law already.
If thay was me it would have scared the crap out of me and probably been the slap in the face i needed.

I'm confused - do you know what the time restrictions are?

NerrSnerr Sat 16-Jul-16 08:41:38

You don't seem to know much for sure, it's all stuff you've heard. I'd stop gossiping and get on with your life.

Agreed the curfew isn't a set time for everyone.they take into account family circumstances so if she needed to put her elderly mother to bed at 8 pm then it may be 9 pm. I wouldn't shop her but I would be making sure I shut my windows etc when out.

Also confused. I didn't say the police would disregard an actual breach of curfew. I said they would be unlikely to follow up a report of "I think someone's on a curfew but I don't know and I don't know the times and I don't really know them and I have heard reports that they have maybe breached it".

If you know for certain the times and that she is not abiding by it of course they would follow it up.

Are you a frustrated FBI agent op? If not mind your own business!? Seriously, get a life.

ilovesooty Sat 16-Jul-16 09:09:25

This is all gossip. Don't be ridiculous.

Lorelei76 Sat 16-Jul-16 09:10:51

They would be useless timings in terms of preventing further shoplifting.

alltouchedout Sat 16-Jul-16 09:21:31

Oh mind your own business. You don't even know the details of the order. If there is an order. You'd look so silly trying to 'report' her.

branofthemist Sat 16-Jul-16 11:20:48

I knew someone on tag 8am-8pm. And you don't even know if she definitely has a curfew.

hotdiggedy Sat 16-Jul-16 11:26:29

You come across as quite holier than thou which is never a good thing.

WorraLiberty Sat 16-Jul-16 11:31:04

I've literally just read a newspaper story about someone on tag whose curfew was 8am-8pm.

I don't know why you want to get involved.

Dawndonnaagain Sat 16-Jul-16 11:36:23

They do vary, and the likelihood is that her curfew is standard shop opening hours, given the nature of the charge. So possibly 8 am. until 6 pm.

OnionKnight Sat 16-Jul-16 11:50:59

You don't seem to know a lot OP.

TSSDNCOP Sat 16-Jul-16 11:52:42

Would you het a shiny badge for reporting this?

It's odd it's only on this site I ever hear anyone talking about reporting anyone. Are you 11?

witsender Sat 16-Jul-16 11:57:09

Why do you care?

WorraLiberty Sat 16-Jul-16 12:00:57

Is there any such thing as 'standard shop opening hours' any more?

I suppose it depends on where you live, but here, even the local newsagents doesn't close until 7.30pm.

insancerre Sat 16-Jul-16 12:02:47

But why?
What's it to you?
