A former police officer who stole £200,000 and seized drugs from a strong room at Scotland's most secure station was ordered to hand over more than £5000 in a crime profit seizure.

A judge was told that the amount to be confiscated was Dean Burnett's "realisable assets", but the Crown warned they may seek to increase the order should he have access to funds in a police pension in future.

Compulsive gambler Burnett, 43, admitted stealing more than £200,000 from the Helen Street police station in Glasgow and drugs, including cocaine and cannabis, during his trial at the High Court in Edinburgh last year.
