A man caught repeatedly driving hire cars in Grays, despite being banned from the roads, has been jailed for four months.

Eric Agyei, of New Cross Road, New Cross Gate was found to have rented 32 vehicles over a four-month period.
 
The 27-year-old man pleaded guilty to the offences when he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court on Monday, 20 January.
 
Agyei was initially spotted by officers from the West Operation Raptor team, who were patrolling in Wharf Road South on Wednesday, 9 January last year.
 
He was found with camera equipment in his hand, stood next to a red Mercedes which had the doors wide open.
 
When asked about the car and how it had got there, Agyei claimed it had been rented and driven by another man.
 
A hire car company, however, established the banned driver had an account with them and had active history over the four-month period.
 
He was voluntarily interviewed by officers and charged with driving whilst disqualified, dishonestly failing to disclose information and using a motor vehicle without insurance.
 
His sentence was four months in prison and a ban from driving for 16-months.
 
Following the sentencing, Det Sgt Scott Fitzmaurice of the West Operation Raptor team said: “Disqualified drivers are banned from our roads for a reason and those individuals who flout the law by driving are therefore uninsured and placing other innocent road users at risk.
 
“It’s clear by the amount of times that Agyei was hiring vehicles that he was not lawfully allowed to drive, that he had no regard for the law and he was punished accordingly by the courts.”
