Glastonbury 2019 attendee jailed for trying to set up a pop-up drug shop
The man tried to sell cocaine, MDMA, LSD and more at Glastonbury 2019.
A man was arrested at Glastonbury last month after authorities found him with a stockpile of Class A and B drugs, trying to get into the festival.
Bristol Crown Court heard defendant Shaun Davies’ case on July 24, where the Liverpool resident pleaded guilty to possession of drugs with intent to supply on June 27 (the date of the festival.)
One-stop-drug-shop Davies was caught with eight bags of cocaine, seven bags of MDMA, 33 LSD tablets, 0.19g of DMT, 36 bags of cannabis, and 18.2g of cocaine.
Apart from the narcotics, Davies pop-up shop also carried digital scales, snap bags and two cell phones.
Fool me once
What’s more; 22 days before the Glastonbury incident devilish Davies had also been handed a suspended 10-month jail term for the same offense in Liverpool.
Davies was sentenced to 42 months, including the now re-activated 10-month jail term for his Liverpool offence.
Presiding over the case, Judge William Hart commented:
“There is always a grave danger, selling drugs at festivals, that young people who attend will be cajoled or tempted into their first experience of drugs, and so there’s that ready market of vulnerable young people.”
Davies’ lawyer, Mark Linehan, said his client had been coerced into selling drugs at Glastonbury by a group of people he owed £5,000 to.
Mr. Linehan said: “He was told if he refused to do so action would be taken against him and or his family. He was in a vulnerable state. He agreed to go to Glastonbury with the drugs and he was apprehended before any selling took place. He is remorseful, he has let himself down and his family down.”
Luckily Davies was arrested before setting up shop at Glastonbury 2019.
