Alan Yeomans, from Derbyshire, has been jailed for 6 and a half years for drugs and money laundering offences.
The Fraudster, who made money from producing Cannabis and selling it on, built a giant, luxury mansion which was disguised as a large shed.
Yeomans declared bankruptcy in 2009, claiming that he lived in his mother’s back garden and owned £300 of furniture. However he was actually living in the six-bedroom Shedley Manor- which he had disguised as a shed.
The 62 year old laundered his drug money and started to run three different businesses after he had claimed bankruptcy.
In the mansion (which is worth £1.2 million) investigators found a secret room in which Cannabis was being produced (which was worth £40,000) and £83,000 worth of fine art.
Due to his sophisticated set-up Yeomans stayed a free man for a large number of years before he could be sent to jail.
