Bellamy was jailed for four years and six months in June after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply cocaine and heroin, being concerned in the supply of cocaine and heroin and possession of criminal property.

Detective Constable James Campbell said: “Operation Hypernova was carried out last September and saw 33 county lines dismantled with crack cocaine, heroin and cannabis worth more than £600,000 seized along with hundreds of thousands of pounds in cash and assets.

“Not only has Bellamy got a significant prison sentence, he must now pay back his ill-gotten gains.”
