A Fife drug dealer has been ordered to pay back £43,000 of his ill-gotten gains.
Colin Tierney, 59, pleaded guilty to supplying cannabis at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He was caught storing the drug at his home following an intelligence led operation by police in December 2013.
Officers discovered he had modified his garage so he could keep a stash of the class B drug.
Tierney returned home to find police searching the house and was arrested.
He admitted contravening the Misuse of Drugs Act and was given a community payback order requiring him to complete 200 hours of unpaid work, with a supervision requirement of 12 months.
He was also ordered to pay back £43,000 from the proceeds of his crime. Under the confiscation order he has six months to pay the sum.
Lindsey Miller, Procurator Fiscal for organised crime and counter terrorism, said: “This should serve as a warning to all criminals involved in supplying cannabis.
“We will not stop at prosecution.
“Even after a conviction is secured, we will continue to use Proceeds of Crime legislation to ensure that profits obtained through criminal conduct are confiscated from those who do not deserve them.”
