A drug dealer who hid a shotgun linked to an attempted murder in Norwich in a loft has been ordered to pay back more than £3,000.
James Elliott was jailed for six years for his part in a drug-dealing enterprise.
Following a search of a hotel in Riverside Road, where he had been staying, £2,000 of Class A drugs was found as well as £3,500 of cash, mobile phones and a double-barrelled shotgun.
