A man convicted of drugs and firearms offences has been issued with a £11,558.21 confiscation order.
Dorset Police was called to a hotel in Bournemouth on 20 October 2012 following reports that a gun and drugs had been seen in a guest’s room.
A handgun, ammunition, cash, cocaine, benzocaine, amphetamine, two mobile phones and a laptop were all found in the hotel room and Daniel Vincent Smedley, 30, was subsequently arrested and charged with drugs and firearms offences.
He pleaded guilty to his offences on 2 November last year at Bournemouth Crown Court and was sentenced to five and a half years’ imprisonment.
Confiscation orders and cash forfeiture orders are paid to the Home Office, with Dorset Police receiving a proportion of the money back.
