A man caught by plain clothes officers illegally touting for work as an unlicensed minicab driver has been convicted for the offence which took place in London's Covent Garden in November 2019.
Tom Sebunya, of Newham, failed to show for his hearing at City of London Magistrates Court on Thursday 23 January.
A 'No bail warrant' has now been issued and circulated by the courts, which means when found he will be arrested and sent straight to court without any bail period.
A spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police Roads & Transport Cabs Unit has confirmed that Sebunya is expected to face a disqualification period once found.
Following the incident which took place near London's Aldwych, Roads & Transport MPS tweeted: "#CabsUnit were out and about in plain clothes when they were solicited by a male, who offered his services as a minicab. He and the vehicle were NOT licensed to take fares! Driver reported for a number of offences including no insurance."
