A drug dealer who used the proceeds of his crime to buy a Mercedes car and Rolex watches has been ordered to repay £100,000.

Peter Fox was jailed for eight years in December last year after he admitted being concerned in the supply of heroin and cocaine from a house in Calton, Glasgow.

A police investigation found the 42-year-old ran a lucrative drug-dealing operation that made up to £42,000 a month.

The High Court in Edinburgh has now granted a £100,000 confiscation order against Fox, which also allows his cars and jewellery to be seized.

Fox acquired a Mercedes worth £16,000, three other cars and several Rolex watches.

Detectives were led to Fox following an outbreak of botulism in Glasgow in 2014, thought to be linked to contaminated heroin.

'This should serve as a warning to all criminals involved in supplying drugs.'
Liam Murphy, procurator fiscal

Fox was not responsible for the botulism but police surveillance revealed hundreds of addicts would visit his house on Millroad Street each week to buy drugs.

As well as the Mercedes and the Rolex watches, Fox was also caught with £5000 in cash.

Procurator fiscal Liam Murphy said: "Our proceeds of crime team have been working to ensure the luxury goods Fox had acquired have been included within the order made against him today.

"This should serve as a warning to all criminals involved in supplying drugs.

"We will not stop at prosecution. We will use the laws available to us to ensure money obtained through crime is confiscated from those who do not deserve it and reinvested into the community."
