Crime and Punishment and Sneakers

22 year old Brit Isaiah Hanson-Frost, is about to have his 55 pairs of designer sneakers, valued at about $30,000 Canadian, sold by the police. Last April, Hanson-Frost was sentenced to six years in jail after admitting to firing a gun at a car in November, 2017 during a gang feud over drugs.  

“We are keen to put a stop to anyone who is living a lavish lifestyle which has been funded through crime” said Detective Inspector Dave Shore-Nye of the Gloucestershire police.

Items seized after a criminal trial are often sold, especially if money raised from the sale can be used to help victims of those crimes. Proceeds from the sale of Hanson-Frost’s sneaker auction will go to the High Sheriff’s Fund, which encourages activities that divert minors from a life of crime.
