More than �28,000 seized from three involved in cannabis production in Beccles and Lowestoft
More than �28,000 has been seized from three people who were involved in the production of cannabis in Waveney.
Brian Reynolds, 57, was jailed for two years in February last year after admitting producing and supplying the drug, while Christine Smedley, 66, and Grizelda Bayliss, 61, were given six-month sentences, suspended for a year, and ordered to do 40 hours of community work for being involved in the production of cannabis.
Police had discovered more than 140 cannabis plants being grown after searches of homes in Ballygate, in Beccles, and Wenhaston Way and Herons Close, in Lowestoft.
On Tuesday, Reynolds, of Holt Road, Caister, previously of Ballygate, and Bayliss, of Wehaston Way, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court, where a Proceeds of Crime Act confiscation saw �15,000 seized from Reynolds and �8,420 from Bayliss.
Smedley, of Herons Close, had previously agreed her confiscation of �5,200, taking the final amount to �28,620.
The Proceeds of Crime Act allows police and the courts to recover money and assets which have been gained through criminal activity.
