On Friday January 22, Watford magistrates made an order for the forfeiture of the entirety of the cash.

Andy Gould of the Eastern Region Special Operations Unit (ERSOU) Economic Crime Unit said: “This order made by the court has brought about a satisfying outcome to an investigation conducted along with our colleagues in Suffolk.

“This has once more underlined our determination to work together to use the powers of the POCA legislation to ensure that cash generated from criminal activity, or intended for use in a similar way will be forfeited at every opportunity.”
