Beccles man ordered to pay up after drug dealing in Hopton Holiday Village in Great Yarmouth
A Beccles man who dealt drugs in a Great Yarmouth holiday park has been ordered to pay back nearly £25,000 in criminal earnings and assets.
Daniel Gould, formerly of Darby Road, had already been ordered sentenced to four years and eight months’ behind bars in September. He had previously pleaded guilty to offences linked to the supply of cocaine, MDMA and ketamine at Hopton Holiday Village.
Now Gould has been given further punishment after financial investigators began confiscation proceedings. The case was settled before Norwich Crown Court and Gould was ordered to pay back £24,983.06.
Police found he has cash and high value music equipment with a combined value high enough to cover the costs. The force gave him three months to pay the money or face another 30 months in prison.
Andy Gould (no relation) of Eastern Region Special Operations Unit said: "This case once more demonstrates that working alongside our colleagues in Norfolk Constabulary we will use powers available through the Proceeds of Crime Act to strip assets.
"Drug dealing has far reaching consequences throughout society and our specialist financial investigators continue to work tirelessly to ensure those involved do not profit from their actions – even if they’ve already been jailed.”
