A convicted drug dealer has been ordered to repay £88,000 of his ill-gotten gains.

Errol Meek McNair (born 06/05/1961), of no fixed abode was jailed for five years and four months in May 2010 after being convicted of possessing Class A drugs with intent to supply.

An investigation into his available assets was launched shortly after his arrest.

At a Proceeds of Crime Hearing at, Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester today, 2 August 2012, McNair was found to have benefited £173,000.00 from selling drugs.

McNair was found to have £88,000 in assets and ordered to pay back within 6 months or face a further 20 months in prison.

Financial Investigator Ian Horrocks, said: “Thanks to the POCA ruling and the cash and property already restrained, McNair is £88,000.00 out of pocket.

“This is money he has made from the drug trade and demonstrates that we will continue our investigations even when someone has been sentenced and jailed.

“Greater Manchester Police is determined to bring those involved in criminality to justice and if anyone has benefited financially they can expect to be stripped of their assets.”
