Cash seized from criminals

More than half a million pounds has been seized from criminals in Calderdale.

A team of officers and financial investigators were able to get 26 confiscation orders in the last year, leading to them recovering £590,173.85.

One of orders involved a 54 year old man from Halifax who was convicted of fraud and converting property. He had gained £607,000 from his crimes and last month was ordered to pay back £174,000.
