The designer clothes of a former fugitive who was snared in a strip club will be sold off at auction.

Dominic McInally stockpiled footwear from brands including Balenciaga and Christian Louboutin while working within a drug gangs that sought to make £1m-a-month.

Investigators believe he personally benefited to the tune of just over £250,000 - but have been left with just his wardrobe, valued at £7,605.

McInally is currently serving a 12 year sentence, handed to him earlier this year after a jury found him guilty of conspiring to import cocaine after a trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

The case followed his extradition from Spain after his six years on the run ended when he was arrested in a strip club near Marbella in February 2020.

McInally and his crew were busted when six kilos of cocaine, of 75% purity, were seized in Thornton in 2014.

The haul had been collected from the border of France and Belgium and secreted in a hidden compartment inside a Seat Leon.

The Class A stash had a wholesale value of up to £50,000 but its high purity meant it could have become up to 25kg once cut with bulking agents.

That would have given the drugs a street value of up to £2.4m.

Five men were jailed for a combined total of 48 years for their roles in the plot, which included plans to source up to 24kgs of cocaine a month.

McInally avoided prosecution by fleeing abroad.

When he was finally brought home to face justice, Ian Harris, prosecuting, told jurors he was "a man who knew the price of everything, but the value of nothing".

Despite having no legitimate income he lived in a flat complex on Formby's Victoria Road, one of Merseyside's most expensive streets.

He had a wardrobe filled with designer clothes and watches then valued in the tens of thousands of pounds, including 44 pairs of footwear, and holidayed in Dubai.

A search of McInally's parents' Crosby home led to £30,000 in cash being found in tins. Another £20,000 was found hidden in another property.

During the trial, Mr Harris said Mr and Mrs McInally were arrested on suspicion of money laundering, but not charged with any criminal offence.

However, £34,335 of the cash was agreed to be criminal proceeds and forfeited to the police.

McInally appeared before a judge at Liverpool Crown Court again this month for a hearing scheduled to discuss a fresh proceeds of crime application.

That case heard the 30-year-old was believed to have benefitted from crime to the value of £257,396.30 - but that all prosecutors felt they could realise of that was £7,605 through the sale of seized designer clothes at auction.

Judge David Potter made a confiscation order for that amount.

If McInally fails to comply with the order he could have his sentence increased, however, because the goods are already in the hands of police, the process is essentially in the hands of the authorities.
