A convicted drug dealer from north Norfolk has been ordered to pay back £80,000 from the proceeds of his crimes.
Aiden Hyland, 25, of Chapel Road, Paston, was sentenced to an 18-month community order and 150 hours of unpaid work at Norwich Crown Court on September 25.
Hyland pleaded guilty to conspiracy to supply cannabis at an earlier hearing.
Sergeant Toby Gosdon said: “I am pleased Hyland has been ordered to return the money he made through his criminality.
“This case demonstrates that crime does not pay and officers will continue to ensure those engaged in illegal activity are stripped of the very thing that motivates them to commit their crimes.”
