A man arrested during an anti-gangs raid in Waltham Forest last month has admitted supplying drugs.  

Aaron Simon, of Cathall Road in Leytonstone, was among 22 people to be arrested on suspicion of drug offences following a Operation Emu, aimed at dismantling the south Leytonstone gang, Loyal Soldiers.

Simon was arrested on April 29 and charged with one count of suppling cannabis.

The 24 year-old pleaded guilty to the offence on May 2 at Thames Magistrates Court. 

He was granted conditional bail to re-appear at the same court on Friday, where he was sentenced to a three-month suspended sentence and ordered to wear an electronic tag for 12 months.

Simon was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £80 and costs of £85. 

The remaining 10 people facing drugs and gun charges have been remanded in custody to appear at Snaresbrook Crown Court in July and August.
