Wisbech: Jailed Drug Dealer Fined £30,000

A 63 year-old man from Wisbech, who is presently 18 months into a 2 year jail term for drug dealing - has now been told to pay £30,000 from his proceeds of crime.

Keith Finch, of Ramnoth Road, Wisbech, was jailed for two years for possession with intent to supply class A drugs at Cambridge Crown Court in April last year.

Police had discovered heroin worth £3,970 at his home, together with cutting agent and more than £10,000 in cash following a warrant in July 2010. 

He admitted the charge but claimed he was looking after the drugs for another man. 

At Cambridge Crown Court, a confiscation order has now been granted for £30,000 against Finch.

e has been given 12 months to pay the order or faces a further 12-month prison sentence. 

Financial Investigator Malcolm Ewles says: "Finch was found to have benefitted from £30,000 through his criminal activity. This should send a strong message that crime does not pay and we will continue to chase money and assets made from criminal activity long after offenders have been convicted."
