Dealer caught with a string of drugs in Creamfields goes to jail


A YOUNG man who entered a music festival with a range of illegal drugs has been arrested.

Lawson Fisher, of Roedale Road in Brighton, was caught entering Creamfields with a selection of Class A and B drugs last summer.

Due to a number of drug possession and supply cases, each year the police take a range of measures to crack down on those trying to smuggle drugs inside.

These include dozens of warning posters leading to the entrance, amnesty buckets and sniffer dogs – all of which the 23-year-old ignored.

Fisher was convicted Thursday after being convicted of possession with intent to supply MDMA, ketamine and amphetamine.

Suzanne Payne, prosecutor, explained how the defendant attended the festival on August 26 last year – the first day of the four-day festival.

But he was caught by police in possession of the illegal substances and charged with trying to supply them to others.

Judges have previously spoken of the “enormous burden” that drug enforcement in Creamfields places on taxpayers.

More than 150 officers attend the festival each of the four days it runs to crack down on illegal activities.

A judge said: “It’s quite an operation to address this issue.

“Those involved in the Class A drug trade at this festival must understand that if caught, they face significant penalties.

“In recent years, people at the festival have lost their lives and sustained serious injuries from using Class A drugs.”

Fisher appeared at Chester Crown Court, where he was sentenced to 28 months in prison by Judge Simon Berkson.

An order was also issued for the confiscation and destruction of the drugs and his mobile phone confiscated by the police. Dealer caught with a string of drugs in Creamfields goes to jail
