Forty people were charged with drug-related offenses during the first two days of the Subsonic Music Festival in Monkerai, Australia.
Festival goers were found with various illegal drugs including amphetamines, LSD, Ketamine, cannabis and ecstasy. Two cannabis cautions were issued. Charged offenders are expected to appear in local court in January 2017 for sentencing.
“Police are disappointed and shocked with the number of people carrying drugs and personally putting their own health and the health of others at risk. Consuming a prohibited drug is extremely dangerous – you don’t know what is in the drug, how and where it has been manufactured, or what effects it can have on your body.
Port Stephens Local Area Command officers will continue to arrest people in possession of or supplying prohibited drugs at these events.”
The illegal activities at these events will put the future of any such event in this area in serious jeopardy.” superintendent Chris Craner of the Port Stephens LAC told media
Subsonic Music Festival’ lineup included artists like Seth Troxler, Ben UFO and Machinedrum.
