Crime lord still facing a dirty cash bill

CRIME boss Jamie Stevenson has still to hand over more than £130,000 in dirty money after a six-year search to find a buyer for his house failed.

Countless attempts to sell the luxury four bedroom home owned by the gangster have proved fruitless.

Stevenson, 49, was hit with a confiscation order for almost £747,000 in 2008 after being jailed for money laundering but has still to produce £136,755.

His assets included designer watches, jewellery, a fleet of taxis and property in Lanarkshire and Ayrshire.

His lawyers claim that the house in East Kilbride, Lanarkshire, is his only remaining asset but no new buyer can be found for it.

Stevenson, who was released from jail last year, bought the home for £310,000 in 2005 but had dropped the price to offers of over £198,000.
