Police have given a round up of some of the criminals in Cornwall that are now behind bars this month thanks to their detective work.

It features people who have been sent to prison for at least 12 months for their crimes.

Joseph Butler

While on holiday in Cornwall in July last year, Joseph Butler used his time here to abuse a girl by touching her.

The 53-year-old, who previously lived on the Shetland Islands but had most recently been living in Wigan, had been staying in Perranporth at the time of his crimes.

He was sentenced to three years in prison by a judge at Truro Crown Court on Thursday, July 16, having pleaded guilty to assaulting a child under 13 and seven counts of making indecent photographs of children.

Kevin Lown

Multiple breaches of a criminal behaviour order led to Kevin Lown, from Stray Park Court in Camborne, finally being sent to prison this month.

The 46-year-old was given a 12-month prison sentenced when he appeared before Truro Crown Court on Thursday, July 9.

It came after he breached a suspended sentence and then a further chance at avoiding prison after sentencing was deferred to assess his behaviour.

Lown was also guilty of common assault in Camborne, following an incident with a security guard at the town's Tesco Extra store.

Matthew Anglesey

Accompanying a County Lines drug dealer, who was sentenced separately in April, 28-year-old Matthew Anglesey arrived from Wallasey in Liverpool with a supply of crack cocaine in the car he was travelling in during June last year.

They were caught up with on the M5 by police but fled on foot after crashing the car near Tiverton, with Anglesey later arrested in Cullompton.

Anglesey was sentenced to two years and six months in prison for conspiracy to supply crack cocaine in the region, after he appeared before a judge at Exeter Crown Court on Tuesday, July 14.
