He was arrested a week later and after a trial at Preston Crown Court he was found guilty of possessing 352.39g of cocaine with intent to supply.

A financial investigation was then launched under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Judge Ian Leeming QC, sitting at Preston Crown Court, has ruled he had assets of £300 available for the authorities to seize back.

He must pay that amount within three months or face an extra month in prison.
