A woman who exploited vulnerable people has been served a 10-year anti-social behaviour injunction following an investigation by Milton Keynes City Council.

Symone Yeboah has been prohibited from threatening or harassing any resident, carrying money or bank cards belonging to other people or accessing their finances.

She is banned from parts of the city until 2034, barred from contacting her former victims, supplying prohibited drugs or influencing or coercing others to take drugs, sharing explicit images of herself or others.

The successful injunction comes a month after the city council’s anti-social behaviour team launched an operation following reports and intelligence that abusers were operating in the city.

Milton Keynes County Court heard that Yeboah exploited four people for several years using threats and manipulation to separate them from their families and support networks while taking their money and using their homes and property without permission.

She coerced them to take drugs and removed their mobile phones so that they could not seek help.

Further court action has been initiated by the council to restrict the movements of two other abusers.

The council’s cabinet member Emily Darlington said: ‘It took a complex and lengthy investigation to get this far, but every step was worthwhile in order to protect local people from being threatened and exploited.’
