Merseyside police are selling off items confiscated from criminals. Police are putting a number of items on ebay with the cash being ploughed back into crime fighting.
Titan, the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit, launched the initiative this week on its website (www.titanrocu.org.uk) by auctioning jewellery seized during a Class A drugs investigation at a starting price of £7,500.
The jewellery was seized during a 2010 investigation by Titan into a gang operating in Merseyside and West Lancashire. The operation, known as 'Operation Ash', led to four men being jailed for more than 20 years.
At a Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) hearing at Preston Crown Court in May, ringleader Vincent Graham from Southport was told that the jewellery, along with his other assets, were being confiscated to pay back the majority of the estimated £926,981 that he made from the drugs conspiracy.
Detective Superintendent Jason Hudson, head of operations at Titan, said more auctions would follow soon.
He said: "This is just the start of us selling the ill-gotten gains of convicted major criminals and re-investing the proceeds back into tackling others like them.
"Expensive jewellery, luxury furniture, fast cars - these trappings of wealth are things that most ordinary people can only dream of yet serious organised criminals have been enjoying them while blighting communities with their drugs and violence.
"Law enforcement agencies are using the Proceeds of Crime Act and court confiscation orders to their full potential and hit criminals in the pockets as well as with prison. By using ebay we hope to sell criminals' assets at the highest price we can.
