Drug dealer has £9,000 confiscated by police
A KELTY drug dealer has had £9,000 confiscated by police.
Don Lees (44) had the confiscation order made against him at Dunfermline Sheriff Court yesterday (Monday).
Police believe that's the amount of money he made from dealing amphetamine.
Lees had previously pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of amphetamine in 2010. He was sentenced to 250 hours of community service.
Lindsey Miller, head of the Serious and Organised Crime Division (SOCD), said, "Drug dealing is a crime which allows us to use the Proceeds of Crime Act against those who commit it.
"Don Lees had been convicted of selling amphetamine, and this allowed us to look at the previous six years of his income to determine how much money he had made from crime.
"I am satisfied that today's confiscation order for £9,000 represents the full benefit he made from drug dealing during this time.
"This money will now be added to the £60 million already gathered from Proceeds of Crime and will be re-invested by Scottish ministers through the CashBack for Communities programme."
