Man stripped of cash from boot

Have your say

magistrates have stripped a man of £4,690 under the Proceeds of Crime Act after he was found with the cash in the boot of his car and could offer no explanation for it.

The 22-year-old, who was stopped on Sheffield Road, Renishaw, in February last year, was also ordered to pay £2,583 in costs.

Cash seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act is split between the Treasury, police, court services and Crown Prosecution Service.
