A SOUTH Cumbrian drugs supplier jailed earlier this year must sell a Rolex watch as part of a criminal payback order.

Jordan Borrowman was locked up for six years in July at Carlisle Crown Court.

Police who brought Borrowman to justice revealed he had established himself in Kendal as the main supplier of heroin and crack cocaine.

He employed two men from the town - Christopher Wales and Alan Ure - as street dealers and as drivers.

All three men were jailed after they admitted conspiring to supply the class A drugs.

Investigators also painstakingly combed through 27-year-old Borrowman's finances as they attempted to strip him of the profits he made through his offending and criminal lifestyle. They did this backed by tough legislation created by the Proceeds of Crime Act.

And he was present in the dock at the crown court today when Recorder Richard Archer declared the benefit of his illegal activity - agreed by all parties - to be £18,594.28.

Borrowman's available assets were deemed to be £3,571.28. This sum comprises around £2,500 cash found in his possession both in Kendal and in Lancashire.

The court heard he must also sell a Rolex watch which is currently in his possession. This is said to be valued at around £1,000.

"It is your responsible to realise that amount of money," Recorder Archer told Borrowman, latterly of Plodder Lane, Farnworth, Bolton.

He faces two months' imprisonment in default if the total amount is not paid.

Wales, 36, and 54-year-old Ure - both of New Shambles, Kendal - were handed jail terms of 32 months and 20 months, respectively, at the summer sentencing hearing.

"The sentences handed out to these three men show that this type of criminality will not be tolerated in Cumbria," a South Cumbria drugs squad spokesman said afterwards.

"Anyone found to be involved in the supply of controlled drugs should be aware that we will use all available powers available to us to make sure those committing offences are brought to justice."
