TWO Barnsley men have been ordered to pay hundreds of pounds between them to the police for drug trafficking offences.

Lewis Royston, 24, and 60-year-old Wayne Royston – both of Hallsworth Avenue in Hemingfield – were sentenced to nine months in prison, suspended for a year, for the offences.

Wayne was ordered to pay £285 and Lewis £360 through a confiscation order.

Financial investigator Laura Hough, head of asset recovery, said: “We see first-hand the damage criminality causes to communities.

“It’s very often that innocent members of the public are impacted greatly and are left to live through the havoc left when criminals are put behind bars.

“Ensuring that resources are put in place to help build back a sense of community provides great motivation for me and my team.”
