A kingpin drug dealer who pocketed almost £350,000 selling “Batman” cocaine was told to repay just £6.22.

Daniel Delaney, 39, employed his pals to distribute the Class A drug which carried a Batman logo.

Delaney was told if he fails to stump up the cash within a month he will have an extra two weeks added to his 10 years and three months jail sentence.

Judge David Griffith-Jones QC even quipped to William England, defending: “I suppose you’ll pay that yourself.”

The dealer, from Gillingham, Kent, netted £348,595 from distributing cocaine in his local area.

He was found with tens of thousands of pounds hidden in a secret compartment in his car.

But after an investigation, it was revealed Delaney had just over £6 to his name.

He was jailed in March after admitting conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

Mobile phone evidence connected Delaney to a 32-year-old man from Gillingham and a 46-year old travel agent from Lordswood, Kent, who were also linked to the drugs trade.

One had been jailed for six years, and the other for eight years.

Earlier today, October 21, a burglar was found guilty of murdering an 88-year-old pensioner – before using his phone to pay off his drug dealers.

Darren John Robert McClean, 41, launched a “brutal attack” on Dennis Kellond in the village of Godstone in Surrey on April 25 this year.

He stole his victim’s mobile phone and used it to call his dealers, paying them £200 in cash, Surrey Live reports.

McClean was found guilty of murder after a week-long trial at Guildford Crown Court, and will be sentenced on October 22.
