Drugs man Peter Pollock has £35,000 assets seized

A man convicted of possessing amphetamine has had £35,000 seized under proceeds of crime laws.

Peter Pollock, 41, from Kilsyth, was sentenced to 150 hours of community service after being found with the drug and £2,610 in cash on 9 May 2009.

A later investigation of his earnings revealed that £160,349 could not be accounted for legitimately.

The Crown said the £35,000 confiscation order represented the sum which was recoverable at this time.

Speaking after the order was granted at Airdrie Sheriff Court, Lindsey Miller, head of the Serious and Organised Crime Division, added: "We reserve the right to ask the court to recalculate the confiscation order up to the amount of the benefit recorded if Pollock obtains any cash or assets in the future."
