£77k Confiscated From Drug Dealer

Dorset police have confiscated more than 77-thousand pounds from a convicted drug dealer.

In December 2011 officers executed a misuse of drugs warrant along Parkmead Road in the Wyke Regis area of Weymouth.

A cannabis factory, MDMA and amphetamine were located, with an estimated street value of £40,000. Cash was also seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA).

The sole occupant of the address, David Walton, was arrested.

While on bail, Walton attempted to sell the property in Parkmead Road and Dorset Police commenced a confiscation investigation.

David Walton was convicted on 23 May 2013 at Dorchester Crown Court for possession of drugs with intent to supply and cultivation of cannabis and was sentenced to four and a half years’ imprisonment.

Detective Constable Tim Meaden, of Dorset Police’s Economic Crime Unit, said:

“Following the conviction Dorset Police secured a cash forfeiture to the value of £1,344.40, and a confiscation order to the value of £77,178.17, which represents the equity from the sale of the house and Walton has now been deprived of the proceeds of his criminal activity.”
