Derbyshire drug dealer's mansion disguised as shed seized
A drug dealer who built a £1.2m mansion disguised as a shed will have his home seized by the government.
Alan Yeomans built Shedley Manor, a six-bedroom luxury property, near Yeaveley in Derbyshire.
He was jailed for six-and-a-half years for a string of drugs and money laundering offences in 2016.
The Insolvency Service has confirmed that a seizure order has been made to confiscate much of Yeomans's property and possessions.
During the trial in 2016, Derby Crown Court heard police found £83,000 in art, designer shoes and cannabis during a raid on Shedley Manor.
Judge Nirmal Shant, sentencing, described the defendant as "a liar, a money launderer and someone involved in the production of drugs".
The Insolvency Service said Yeomans must pay a confiscation order of £650,000 or face a further five-and-a-half years in prison.
Glenn Wicks, who led the investigation, said: "We have now taken action to ensure that he has not profited from his crimes."
