A DRUG dealer who stored cash made from the sale of cocaine at his nan’s house has been ordered to pay back his ill-gotten gains.

Callum Voos, from Birchwood, was jailed for seven years last summer for his part in Jamie Oldroyd’s notorious cocaine racket which shipped huge amounts of drugs from Warrington across the country.

Members of this gang – as well as a linked group led by Jamie Simpson, who were also taken down during Operation Dreadnought after being caught with £20million of cocaine during a police sting on the M6 – were jailed for a total of 150 years during 2019.

Voos was a ‘trusted associate’ of Oldroyd’s – working alongside Lewis Johnson, who operated a safehouse in Sankey Bridges, and being seen exchanging packages in the car park of an Asda supermarket during a covert police operation.

The 21-year-old, of Strawberry Close, even stashed money made during the gang’s illicit dealings at his grandma’s house.

He was brought back before the courts on Monday, January 6, for a Proceeds of Crime Act hearing.

Liverpool Crown Court heard that Voos, who appeared via video link to HMP Altcourse wearing a zip-up Berghaus fleece, made a total of £6,727 from his involvement in the gang.

Judge Robert Trevor-Jones told him to pay back a total of £1,005 of this money within 28 days or face an extra 56 days in prison.

But this money has already been seized by Cheshire Police, with the gang member found with this amount of cash on him when he was arrested as a passenger in co-defendant Kyle Kelly’s car on Glover Road in Locking Stumps in February 2018.

The court heard that Voos was ‘motivated by financial gain’ when was he was imprisoned in July last year, having been found guilty of conspiracy to supply cocaine after a four-week trial.
