A drug dealer will have to hand over his £18,000 Rolex as the proceeds of his dealing.

Ryan Williams, 25, was jailed for two-and-a-half years at Oxford Crown Court last November after he was convicted of possession with intent to supply cocaine, heroin and cannabis.

At a hearing on Wednesday morning, Judge Michael Gledhill QC ruled that the Walsall man made £53,800 from the drugs trade.

Williams must hand back £29,344 under Proceeds of Crime Act rules, including a Rolex Submariner watch worth £18,000.

The bulk of Williams’ cash and assets from which the confiscation order will be paid are already in the hands of the police, the court heard.

However, he will need to raise almost £4,000 from the sale of a 61-plate car.

Judge Gledhill said: “Following your conviction on this indictment alleging possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply, the prosecution and defence are agreed your benefit from this case amounted to £53,800.

“The available amount that is either in your possession – the ownership of a vehicle – or already in police possession, amounts to £29,344.

“You have £3,850 to pay once the money that the police have in their possession has been handed over, as it were and I give you three months to pay that amount as the vehicle presumably has to be sold.”

Williams, of Oberon Grove, Wednesbury, risks another 12 months’ imprisonment if he fails to pay the sum.
