Curfew and drug rehab course for Harold Hill man guilty of possessing cocaine and failing to answer bail

Cocaine possession and failure to surrender to bail earned a 23-year-old Harold Hill man a curfew and a drug rehabilitation course.

Popoola must remain at home between 8pm and 8am every night until December 31, and must attend treatment for drug dependency for six months.

He pleaded guilty to both charges. Barkingside magistrates imposed the sentence on Friday, December 3.
