Approximately £20,000 was found when Wiltshire Police raided a house in Swindon.
Officers executed one of several drug warrants in Montagu Street, Rodbourne, yesterday (28 April).
Inside the property – a three-bedroom house of multiple occupancy – they found drugs, scales, snap bags, a gold bar and designer clothing – as well as the £20,000 in cash.
At Swindon Magistrates’ Court this morning (29 April), police financial investigator Lou Martin applied to detain the money – thought to belong to Kyle Bredbere – for a period of six months.
She said the force suspects the cash was attained through the supply of Class A drugs – as the occupant of the room is believed to be unemployed and has no legitimate income.
Nobody was inside the house when officers entered and no arrests were made, but a voluntary interview has been arranged with Mr Bredbere.
Magistrates granted the cash detention order.
