Adam appeared for the Chief Constable in a cash forfeiture application under Proceeds of Crime Act 2002. The cash was seized as part of an investigation by Yorkshire and Humber Regional Organised Crime Unit Cyber Crime Team, with support from the NCA and DWP, into offences being committed by a hacker group called “AnonGhost”. The application was wholly successful, and a forfeiture order was made in the sum of £83,015 plus the Chief Constables’ costs.
