A 22-year-old Sudbury scaffolder who was involved in the supply of cannabis has been ordered to pay a £1,625 confiscation order.

Before Ipswich Crown Court on Friday February 7 was Bradley Ashdown, of The Street, Assington, who was given a nine month prison sentence suspended for 18 months in August last year after he admitted being concerned in the supply of cannabis and possession of cannabis.

He was also given a 30 day rehabilitation activity order and ordered to do 180 hours of unpaid work.

On Friday February 7 Ashdown returned to court for a hearing under the Procceeds of Crime Act which heard that his benefit from his offending was £16,685.

Daniel Taylor, prosecuting, said Ashdown's only asset was £1,625 seized from him by police and Judge Martyn Levett made a confiscation order in that sum.

Last month Ashdown admitted breaching his suspended sentence order by failing to turn up for 12 unpaid work appointments and was jailed for eight months.

The court heard that Ashdown had admitted a previous breach of the orde on November 7 last year, and was given an extra 10 hours of unpaid work and warned it was his last chance.
