A jailed cocaine dealer who hid a kilo of drugs in a tumble dryer has been slapped with an extra punishment by being ordered to pay back £12,000.

When police searched Lee Nevard's home in Sandringham Drive, Dartford, they found a loaded handgun, a stun gun and £10,000 in cash along with the drugs.

A motorbike with licence plates linked to previous drug deals was also found.

Nevard, 35, was jailed for more than nine years in January last year after pleading guilty to possessing cocaine with intent to supply, possessing a firearm, stun gun and money laundering.

He has now been ordered to pay back £12,681 after Kent and Essex police examined Nevard's criminal earnings.

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."
