Oz DJ Kasey Taylor swallows half a kilo of ketamine
DJ Kasey Taylor has been a part of the Melbourne club scene for more than twenty years.
He was arrested at the Melbourne airport after being caught attempting to smuggle ketamine last month. Ketamine is commonly used as an anaesthetic by doctors and veterinarians.
Both DJ Kasey Taylor and Robert Charles Oung, a club promoter are expected to face charges.
They were both arrested by the Australian Border Force on their way back from Asia. They were held at the Alfred Hospital until the ketamine passed through their systems. Both of them swallowed around five hundred grams of the drug.
Recreational use of Ketamine
Ketamine is used at parties and recreationally, it is known to cause delirium and hallucinations, it is also regularly cut with other drugs such as MDMA.
Both DJ Kasey Taylor and Robert Oung are out on bail and they will face the Magistrates’ Court in August for a committal mention.
According to reports DJ Kasey Taylor and others in the Melbourne club scene have been under law enforcement surveillance for many months before the two of them were arrested.
Last month the same drug taskforce cops raided two popular Melbourne night clubs, Two Floors Up and Brunswick’s Railway Hotel. They seem to be on a crackdown of drug sales and trafficking in the city.
A Melbourne DJ, Jason Peter Kolbeck, is believed to have a financial interest in Two Floors Up. He was charged with trafficking a large commercial amount of drugs. He has been remanded to appear before the magistrates court on July 25.
DJ Kasey Taylor went to Railway Hotel after he was let out on bail and posted pictures of himself at the club.
Given the serious charges the club owners are facing it would be assumed that the night clubs would be closed until further notice. But surprisingly both venues are still carrying on business as usual.
