An Essex builder jailed for drug trafficking has been ordered to hand over £1.2 million of assets.
Jason Warner, 49, from Canvey Island, was given a confiscation order totalling £1,220,192 at Kingston Crown Court on Monday, November 9.
Warner was warned he would serve up to a further seven years in prison if he failed to pay the full sum within three months, and would still be liable for the money.
Officers from the Organised Crime Partnership – a joint National Crime Agency and Metropolitan Police Service unit – arrested Warner in October 2018 for supplying multiple kilos of cocaine, cannabis and amphetamines across London and Essex.
He later pleaded guilty to four counts of conspiracy to supply controlled drugs and three counts of money laundering, and was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison in June 2019.
Two criminal associates – former RAF sergeant David Corentin, aged 33, of Lighterman Road, Rainham, and Dennis Jacob, aged 72, of Carnation Close, Romford – were also jailed for money laundering.
