A man found in a stolen car with a knife has been banned from Stratford for two years.
Carlos Pinto Chaves of Wakefield Street, East Ham, fled after police stopped him in Portway, Plaistow, driving a stolen white Hyundai ix35 with fake number plates in March.
Officers caught him and found the knife in the vehicle.
Chaves, 29, pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods at Stratford Magistrates’ Court but police arrested him a second time when he failed to show for sentencing.
A charge of handling points and blades was dropped due to a lack of evidence.
