10:08am 8th November 2014
Two convicted Dorset drug dealers have been ordered to pay back the money they made.
25-year-old Scott Woods from West Lulworth was sentence to 12 years in Prison - and 29-year-old Stewart Davidson from Weymouth was given a 6 year prison sentence back in June.
Woods has been given 6 months to pay over £213,000, otherwise he faces more time being added to his sentence.
Davidson has been told to hand over £78,000.
Detective Sergeant Andrew Kennard, of Dorset Police's Economic Crime Unit, said: "These men were arrested in October and November 2012 following an extensive investigation led by Dorset Police's Major Crime Team. The investigation unveiled a comprehensive conspiracy to supply a class A drugs across the county of Dorset.
"Dorset Police does not tolerate drug dealing and we will take every opportunity to deprive criminals of their illegal gain.
"We will use all the powers available to us to ensure that anyone convicted of drug dealing is dealt with robustly by the criminal justice system and by the courts using Proceeds of Crime Act legislation."
