£500,000 bill for profit from drugs

A FORMER greyhound breeder has been ordered to hand over more than £500,000 in crime profits.

Cannabis farmer Alexander Cameron was jailed for six years in 2010 after police found a commercial operation to cultivate the drug at disused kennels at his remote farm.

Cameron, 66, who has since been freed from prison, was pursued by the Crown under proceeds of legislation following his conviction.

A judge at the High Court in Edinburgh was told yesterday during a brief hearing in the continued confiscation action that an agreement had been reached.

Cameron's counsel Gail Gianni told Lord McEwan that a settlement had been achieved in the case.
