A couple jailed for selling drugs at raves have had their assets confiscated following a hearing at Lincoln Crown Court.

Disc jockey Adrian Woods and his girlfriend Lindsay Vaughan were each jailed for five and a half years in March last year.

At the time, the court heard they were arrested after more than £2,000 worth of drugs including ketamine, LSD, ecstasy and amphetamine were found when police raided their home at Grange Cottages, Mareham on the Hill, in May 2010.

Woods was ordered to hand over his available assets of £1,530 within six months or face a further 35 days in jail.

Recorder Simon Drew also ordered that Vaughan's available assets of £810 should be confiscated. She will face a further 21-day sentence if the money is not paid within six months.

An earlier hearing was told that scales, bags used to package drugs and caffeine were seized during the police raid.

Vaughan's mobile phone contained "numerous and repeated" messages for the supply of drugs.

Christopher Lowe, prosecuting, said: "The messages related essentially to the supply of ketamine but there were also requests for other drugs."

Woods and Vaughan moved to West Street, Horncastle, but a second police raid in August 2010 led to the discovery of more than £700 worth of ketamine.

Woods, 27, now of Mareham Road, Horncastle, and Vaughan, 31, now of Kenmore Drive, Woodhall Spa, each admitted six charges of possession of drugs with intent to supply on May 13, 2010, involving drugs including ketamine, LSD, ecstasy and amphetamine.

Both also admitted possession of ketamine with intent to supply on August 6, 2010.

The couple are both still in custody serving their sentences.
