A man has been handed a suspended prison sentence and community service order after admitting to dealing Class B drugs.
Ahmed Ibrahim, from Harrow, had originally denied the charge of possession with intent to supply but changed his plea shortly before the trial was due to begin.
He had been stopped by officers in his car while driving along Spencer Road, in Harrow, in March last year. During a search of the vehicle, they discovered cannabis, a quantity of cash, and messages on his phone relating to drug supplying.
The 26-year-old, of Overbrook Walk, was given a nine-month prison sentence suspended for 18 months when he appeared for sentencing at Harrow Crown Court last month (January 12).
He was also ordered to carry out 150 hours of community service, had £600 cash forfeited and was ordered to pay court costs of £400.
PC Francis Shepherd said: “This is a good result for the community of Harrow and another example of the extent that Harrow Police will go to, to rid the streets of those intent on breaking the law.
“Our pursuit against criminality is relentless as we aim to make Harrow the safest borough in London.”
