A HEROIN dealer caught with drugs and cash stuffed in a Weetabix box has been ordered to hand over £14,000 in crime profits.

Paul John Greenhalgh, was jailed for three years and four months at Glasgow High Court yesterday.

The 39-year-old from Salford, Lancashire, pled guilty on June 13 to being concerned in the supply of heroin and was made subject of a confiscation order for £13,940.

When police stopped him in a car on M74 at Bothwell Services, they found £13,940 in a vacuum cleaner and the box.

Lindsey Miller, procurator fiscal for Organised Crime and Counter Terrorism, said: "We ensured that we've recovered the profits from his criminal enterprises."
