Six men and three women were jailed for a total of 68 years in 2013 for their roles in the drugs ring which involved the supply of heroin across Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, London and West Yorkshire. Now a court has ruled that 44,949 recovered during the operation should be forfeited under the Proceeds Of Crime Act after an investigation by the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU). The money had been seized from addresses in Spalding and Crowland in Lincolnshire, Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, Downham Market in Norfolk and Heckmondwike in West Yorkshire.

The forfeiture order was made at Norwich Magistrates Court on Wednesday (28 October) on the grounds that the cash seized represented the proceeds of crime or was intended to be used in future crime. Detective Chief Inspector Chris Balmer, from ERSOU Regional Asset Recovery Team, said: The message to take from this is simple. Crime doesn t pay when ERSOU are on your case.

Even if you think you ve made a profit, and even if you try to hide it, we will come and take it from you.

This money will go to pay for the fight against crime in the Eastern region and beyond, and ERSOU officers will work tirelessly to add to it by stripping assets from criminals who bring misery to decent people everywhere.
