Court orders seizure of Plymouth drugs mastermind's assets
A MAN jailed for masterminding a plot to supply cocaine and amphetamine from a lock-up made more than £50,000 from his dealing, a court heard.
But Wayne Sandercock only had assets of around £2,500 to be seized by the police, Plymouth Crown Court was told.
Father-of-six Sandercock, aged 38, was jailed for eight years and six months in November last year. Sandercock, of Southway Drive, had earlier admitted conspiracy to supply Class A and Class B drugs between December 2009 and May 2010.
The court heard police seized drugs worth almost £50,000 from a lock-up in Whitleigh.

Officers found 836 grams of cocaine worth about £33,500 and 1.6 kilograms of amphetamine worth £16,000.
The Crown Prosecution Service said Sandercock was the "mastermind" of the operation.
Mary McCarthy, back in court for proceedings under the Proceeds of Crime Act, said Sandercock had benefited by an estimated £51,707 from his dealing.
But he said it had been agreed with his defence that his assets amounted to about £2,500.
Judge Paul Darlow ordered that he hand over that amount. He set a period of 45 days in jail in default.
