Dozens of pairs of a gunman's designer trainers, worth almost £ 20,000, are to be auctioned off to raise money to help fight crime.

Isaiah Hanson-Frost is currently serving a six-year jail term shooting with a rival gear gang members in Gloucester in November 2017.

The 55 pairs of trainers – which include brands such as Gucci, Christian Louboutin, Valentino, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and Jimmy Choo – were arrested from a home in the city when the 22-year-old was arrested.

Hanson-Frost was therefore charged with possession of criminal property in relation to the trainers, but pleaded not guilty to this offense and during a hearing at Gloucester Crown Court on November 23.

Nike trainers rated it at least £ 100.

Under the Police Property Act, valued at £ 18,500 – at auction.

Gloucestershire Police and Crime Commissioner Martin Surl said the money raised from the auction would go towards supporting "projects within the county that prevent, deter and divorce young people from criminality".

Crime Operations Detective Inspector Dave Shore-Nye said: "We often see the reason for someone to commit crime to their own personal greed and to make money.

Gloucestershire Constabulary wants to go to a criminal record and then put the money to good use. "
