Notorious lag who got Britain’s first-ever ASBO wanted on prison recall

Police are hunting for an infamous criminal who received Britain's first-ever ASBO for a prison recall after he was jailed for a gunpoint robbery.

Humberside Police are searching for Kye Green, 33, who was inside for carrying out an armed robbery on a newsagent's.

He first hit the headlines as the first person in the UK to receive an Antisocial Behaviour Order back in 2003.

In June 2018, he was handed a six-and-a-half year prison sentence for the armed robbery of a newsagent.

Green was teenager in 2003 when he was given the first ASBO in North East Lincolnshire, the Daily Mail reports.

The notorious thug was so well known in Grimsby that when he was arrested, he asked for his latest trial to be moved to Hull Crown Court after claiming he wouldn't be able to get a fair hearing.

He spoke to the Grimsby Telegraph in 2007, saying that he was turning his life around. He also said that prison was "soft’ and "just a holiday".

At his trial, Green pleaded guilty and smirked as he told the judge who had sentenced him: "Nice one."

Green was originally sentenced to nine-and-a-half years in prison by the judge, but it was later reduced to six-and-a-half years because a wrong sentencing bracket had been used.

The criminal admitted to charges of robbery, possessing a blank-firing fully-automatic starting pistol and handling a stolen vehicle.

In 2018, Green and an accomplice entered McColl's newsagent in Grimsby wearing masks, just after it opened at 6am. They threatened a female shop assistant with a gun.

Green told the assistant: "Open the till. Take all the money out or I’ll shoot you."

Kye is currently believed to be in the Grimsby area. If you have seen him, or know of his whereabouts, you are asked to call police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference 16/113653/21.
