Some of the luxury items owned by a convicted drug dealer are being auctioned off.
A new Audi TT convertible and Rolex watch are among the exclusive items being sold-off under the Proceeds of Crime Act.
Gucci handbags, Prada sunglasses and a Hugo Boss suit are some of the assets worth almost £130,000 confiscated from members of drugs gang jailed earlier this month.
Six people were sentenced to a total of 17 years in prison after an investigation by Norfolk Police’s Serious and Organised Crime Unit and Intelligence Directorate into the supply of illegal drugs in the county.
Operation Abut targeted the supply of cocaine from Cheshire to the Yarmouth, Gorleston and Caister areas.
The Audi TT belonged Robert Munday, 29, of Lacy Green, Wilmslow, who was sentenced to four years eight months imprisonment for conspiracy to supply a Class A drug.
The sports car along with £77,500 in cash was seized from Munday when he was arrested by police in January this year.
DCI Mark Afford said: “This property was recovered as a result of a long-running investigation into illegal drug activity within Norfolk.
Stopping the supply and use of illegal drugs in our community combined with securing prosecutions for organised criminals is a priority, however the investigation does not stop there.
We also aim to recover any assets which criminals may have built up on a life of crime which the Proceeds of Crime Act allows us to do.
This means jailed criminals will not be able to return to a life of luxury built on criminal activity once released from prison.”
