Court seizes drug dealer’s assets

A Norfolk man convicted of drug offences and money laundering will have £312,457 confiscated from his bank accounts

Norwich Crown Court has granted a confiscation order against the assets of
Larry Mayes from King’s Lynn, after he admitted to five offences of concealing
criminal property between 2003 and 2007 in building society accounts and by
buying a £19,000 Saab car.

He was jailed for five years for the original offences in November 2007,
according to

Norwich Crown Court heard Mayes had benefited by £400,000 from criminal
activities and his assets, which could now be seized by a confiscation order,
were £312,457.

Police caught Mayes flushing drugs down his bath’s plughole when they raided
his home to arrest him in February last year.
