A man has been banned from entering Ilford town centre for five years after being convicted of drugs possession.

Hamid Ahmadi, 22, of York Road, Forest Gate, pleaded guilty to possession of a class A drug and was sentenced at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday June 20 to 150 hours of community service.

Ilford police arrested Ahmadi and found him in possession of seven wraps of cocaine on September 18 last year.

After the hearing, police applied successfully for Ahmadi to be issued with a criminal behaviour order banning him from entering Ilford town centre and from using Ilford train station.

He is also banned from being in groups of two or more people unless it’s with a family member or key worker.

Sgt Lee Wilkinson, of Ilford town Safer Neighbourhoods team, said: “This is the 18th CBO that we’ve issued to prevent people entering into the town centre in the last two years.”
