In an effort to fund their fight against crime, police are auctioning off a gang member’s collection of trainers.
Isaiah Hanson-Frost is currently doing a six-year bid for discharging his weapon at a rival gang’s car. During his trial on November 23, Hanson-Frost denied the criminal possession charge but agreed to surrender his sneaker collection.
Police and crime commissioner Martin Surl states that the proceeds will help finance their “30 projects a year”, including “the Getting Court scheme, an initiative which enables local students from 15 to 18 to attend Gloucester Crown Court and witness the effects of a real trial.”
However, all hope’s not lost for Hanson-Frost–he’ll be able to keep any trainers valued less than £100.
