A SERIAL criminal from Edinburgh has been hit with an Asbo banning him from 
entering East Lothian.

Robert Arthur, 22, of Magdalene Gardens, was given the order following a court application by East Lothian Council.

Arthur was described by police as “a recidivist offender”. Since 2005, he has been named as the accused in 42 crimes in East Lothian.

A police spokesman said: “The Asbo prevents the offender from entering East Lothian, providing respite for individuals and businesses there.”
