Bradford pharmacy worker earned £625,000 from growth hormone fraud
A pharmacy worker, who was jailed for stealing more than £500,000 of human growth hormone drugs from his employers, has been ordered to pay back nearly £40,000.
Naheem Malik, 26, was convicted last year of theft and fraud from the Lloyd’s Pharmacy in Leeds Road, Bradford, where he worked.
Malik, of Moorside Lane, Laisterdyke, Bradford, was jailed for five years and yesterday appeared for a confiscation hearing.
Prosecutor Anthony Reid said it was agreed that Malik had benefited by £625,812. His only realisable assets were £36,980.
The judge made a confiscation order in that sum, to be paid within six months. Malik faces 15 months’ imprisonment in default.
