Class A drug dealer has cash confiscated by judge

CASH seized from a Leamington drug dealer who is serving a prison sentence has been confiscated by a judge as the proceeds of his crime.

Kyle Leahy was jailed for two years and eight months at Warwick Crown Court earlier this year after pleading guilty to possessing heroin and crack cocaine with intent to supply them.

At a confiscation hearing into his finances – under the Proceeds of Crime Act – Judge Anthony Potter ruled Leahy’s benefit from his activity came to £410 – and that his assets, including savings and cash found on him, totalled £248.69.

So the Judge ordered the 21-year-old of Windmill Road, Leamington, to pay a £248.69 confiscation order within two months or face a further 14 days in prison in default.
