A drug dealer caught with a kilo of cocaine and a firearm at his home in Dartford has been ordered to pay back £12,000.

Lee Nevard was jailed for more than nine years in January 2017 after officers executed a search warrant at his address in Sandringham Drive.

During the search, which happened in September 2015, they found large quantities of Class A drugs hidden in a tumble dryer, a loaded handgun, a stun gun, and £10,000 in cash.

A motorbike, alongside multiple licence plates, was seized from the garage and linked to previous reports of drug dealing.

Nevard, 36, pleaded guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply, possessing a firearm, possessing a stun gun and money laundering.

He was jailed for nine years and three months, and following a hearing at Maidstone Crown Court on Monday 22 January he was ordered to pay back £12,681.

Detective inspector Annie Clayton, of the serious economic crime unit, said: “The work of officers doesn’t stop following the conclusion of a criminal case.

“Where possible, our financial investigators will try to recoup the proceeds of any criminal activity so offenders don’t continue to benefit from their illegal dealings once they’ve been released from prison.”
