Last year Harrison Wood, 35, of Steeton, Bradford, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and cannabis, selling cocaine and possession of MDMA. He received a two-year prison sentence, including 18 months probation.
Following an investigation by North Yorkshire Police financial investigators, a confiscation order has now been made against him to repay the benefits of his criminal behavior.
At a hearing at Bradford Crown Court today (September 14), Wood was ordered to pay a total of £36,121.78 within three months or face a nine-month prison sentence.
DI Janine Mitchell, head of economic crime at North Yorkshire Police, said: “This case shows that crime simply doesn’t pay. Anyone attempting to profit from the supply of illegal drugs – or other criminal activity – in our area should not only face a conviction but also a confiscation order.”
