Corless, who pleaded guilty to manufacturing methamphetamine and firearms charges, also loses half of the value of his home.

“We’re satisfied with the final forfeiture ruling which reflects the commitment of staff to the details required to achieve such results,” Detective Sergeant Wayne Gray Gray said.

He said the case had taken five years to reach a conclusion.

Corless owned a motorcycle-importing business which sourced American Choppers and Harley-Davidson bikes.

He was jailed for 11 years in May last year.
