A JAILED drug dealer who was caught with heroin in his car has been ordered to pay back �40,000 or spend more time in prison.
Raymond Goodison, 45, from Northolt, was snared after police officers pulled over his black Audi TT car in Emerald Road, Stonebridge, in November 2007.
He unsuccessfully tried to throw away a bag, which was seized by the cops, analysed and found to be 27.9 grams of the class A drug with a street value of more than �1,000.
In March last year he was convicted of possession of drugs with intent to supply and sentenced to five years.
An investigation was launched into his finances and investigating officers estimated Goddison collected �252,161 in ill-gotten gains in the past six years up to his arrest.
Last week a confiscation hearing ordered Goodison to pay back �40,000 in six months or serve a further 15 months in jail.

Paul Hart from Brent's Financial Investigation said: "When you consider that he was caught in possession of drugs valued between �1,000 to �2,000 five years imprisonment and the loss of �40,000 will have a substantial impact on his criminal lifestyle.
