Proceeds of Crime – Repayment Order.

After being imprisoned for a combined total of 70 years in 2018 for dealing cocaine between the East Midlands and Dewsbury, a gang of 10 were further ordered to repay £1m+ under the Proceeds of Crime Act in recent judgements at the Leicester Crown Court.

Police seized: cash, large amounts of Premium Bonds, expensive watches, car and off-road motorcycles, personalised number plates and a number of digital devices; they were able to demonstrate these were purchased by the criminal profits of drug dealing.

Should those in prison fail to pay the Orders, the debt remains on their assets and/or they are likely to serve further time inside.
