Cambridgeshire: Police Seize £630,000
Police in Cambridgeshire have taken £630,000 off criminals in the last year.
The money has been confiscated under the 'Proceeds of Crime Act', which allows police to seize money that criminals have made from illegal activities.
Officers can also confiscate money that is proved to be intended for use in illegal activity.
The cash is then divided between the Home Office, courts, Police and Crown Prosecution Service.
Detective Chief Inspector Jim McCrorie said: "The Proceeds of Crime Act enables us to disrupt criminals' ability to profit from their crimes.
In the past year we have targeted more than 100 criminals and a number of individuals we believe have made money illegally but have not faced criminal charges.
We will use all of the powers available to ensure those people who have made money from criminal activity pay it back.
If offenders do not have the full amount they have profited at the time of the confiscation order we will maintain records of what they owe and continue to apply for confiscation orders as soon as that money becomes available.
We will relentlessly target criminals and ensure we disrupt their criminal activity."
