A Swaffham man jailed for 11 years for drugs offences was back in court for a confiscation hearing and ordered to pay back more than £6.000.
Keith Wright, 58, was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court in April this year after admitting three counts of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.
Hilary O'Keefe, prosecuting, said the benefit figure from his drug dealing operation was estimated at £36,000.
However she said Wright had no assets other than the £6,118, seized by police at his arrest.
Recorder Burton ordered the cash to be confiscated.
