Man jailed for trying to set up a pop-up Drug shop at Glastonbury 2019

Shaun Davies, 24, from Liverpool was caught by security at Worthy Farm last month with a stockpile of Class A and B drugs as he tried to get into the festival, Bristol Crown Court heard yesterday (July 24).

He pleaded guilty to possession of drugs with intent to supply on June 27, reports the Bristol Post. It came just 22 days after he was handed a suspended jail term for the same offence in Liverpool.

Judge William Hart jailed Davies for 42 months, which included full activation of the previously suspended 10-month term.

“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,” Judge Hart said.
