Rupert Brown, of Tottenham, sent to Pentonville prison for breaching court order
A drug dealer who terrorised neighbours has been sent to prison after he breached a court order.
Jeffrey Brown, also known as Rupert, is now behind bars at Pentonville prison after flouting an injunction which banned him from visiting two addresses in Tottenham.
Brown was banned from visiting his girlfriend’s house in Gladesmore Road and his mother’s house in St Ann’s Road, where he dealt drugs and threatened neighbours.
People living in Gladesmore Road were initially reluctant to make complaints against Brown for fear of reprisals.
But they eventually began to work with Haringey Borough Council’s anti-social behaviour team and police officers to secure and serve a court injunction in August 2012.
Despite being banned from both locations, Brown made numerous visits even after being handed a suspended sentence for breaches this July.
He has now been sent to prison and is due to remain there until January.
Councillor Richard Watson, cabinet member for communities, said: “Jail is what Mr Brown deserves after repeatedly refusing to respect his neighbours, refusing to respect the law and refusing to adhere to the instructions of the court.
“His behaviour has been totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
“The council and the police worked hard to secure these injunctions and to push for a custodial sentence for Mr Brown because we know what a devastating impact anti-social behaviour can have on individuals and on the community.”
