Romil Gounder, 19 of Vincent Road Hounslow has been convicted and fined for possession of cannabis on Thursday 3rd September 2020 at Ealing Magistrates Court.
On Tuesday 19th May 2020 officers from Hounslow West Neighbourhood Policing Team were on cycle patrol in Beaversfield Park Hounslow following a number of reports from local residents about anti-social behaviour.
During their patrols officers came across Romil Gounder, who was in the process of smoking cannabis.
Romil was doing so in full view of families who were using the park and showing blatant disregard for the law and welfare of others.
He was detained and searched by officers and a quantity of cannabis was recovered.
He was interviewed under caution on the street where he admitted the offence and a case was prepared. He was later charged by post.
On Thursday 3rd September 2020 Romil was found guilty of possession of cannabis at Ealing Magistrates Court and was fined £233 with additional costs and victim support charges of £119.
PC Dan Cheeseman, Dedicated Ward Officer for Hounslow West, said “Being a dedicated ward officer is all about responding to the concerns of the local community. Beaversfield Park is widely used by local families and patrol it regularly to help make it a safer place and reassure the public. We hope that this conviction will send a message that drug use will not be tolerated”
