An ex-footballer who became a main cocaine supplier to a town has been ordered to hand over £40,000 in crime profits.
Former St Johnstone midfielder Martin Maher was earlier described as "a principal supplier of cocaine to users in Auchterarder" in Perthshire.
Maher, 28, was jailed for four years and three months last year after admitting being concerned in the supply of the Class A drug from February 2007.
Those who bought drugs knew him usually through local football teams, school or work, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.
The court heard that Maher earned between £1000 and £5000 a month from a well-established firm which was started by his father.
A police surveillance operation seized one-and-a-half kilograms of cocaine with a potential street value of £78,250.
Police set up an undercover operation and tailed another man as he drove a van belonging to the firm to Widnes in Cheshire where he picked up a package before returning north.
The van was stopped and searched in a layby as it drove on the A9 and a kilogram of drugs was recovered.
Not all of the seizure was destined for Maher but the watch continued and a further 500g was also found.
Maher was arrested as he got off a flight from a working trip to Spain.
He had previously played for the Perth SPL side before continuing to play football at junior and amateur levels.
Sentencing, judge Lord Bannatyne told him: "You were somebody, who it seems, came from a good background where your family was able to offer you a job and able to offer you a considerable position in society."
The Crown brought proceedings to seize any illegal profits from Maher, formerly of Victoria Road, Auchterader, under proceeds of crime legislation.
Maher returned to the same court on Monday where his counsel, Mark Moir, told judge Lord Stewart during a brief hearing that a settlement had been reached.
Advocate depute Barry Divers asked the court to record the benefit from Maher's "general criminal conduct" at £40,000 and to make a confiscation order in the same sum with six months to pay it.
Lindsey Miller, head of the Serious and Organised Crime Division (SOCD) at the Crown Office, said: "Maher was involved in a complex drug dealing operation between Tayside and Merseyside, and which used vehicles from Maher's construction business to transport money and drugs.
"His conviction for this 'criminal lifestyle' charge allows investigation of the previous six years of this income. After full forensic investigation of his accounts, a total of £40,000 could not be accounted for legitimately and was therefore deemed to be proceeds of crime.
"I am pleased that we have the opportunity to recoup the entirety of that figure from him today. This money will be added to the £60m already gathered from Proceeds of Crime and will be re-invested by Scottish Ministers through the CashBack for Communities programme."
