A teenager has admitted having £600 worth of drugs at last year’s Lockdown Festival but denied importing £12,000 worth of ecstasy and ketamine from Holland.
Lewis Rawlinson, aged 19, of Yonder Street, Ottery St Mary, admitted possession of ecstasy, LSD, diazepam and another party drug with intent to supply on September 10 last year.
He was found with 20.5 grams of ecstasy (MDMA); 18 tablets of LSD, 5.4 grams of diazepam, and 0.01 grams of aprolan at the music festival at Powderham Castle.
He pleaded not guilty to smuggling 382 grams of MDMA and 53.24 grams of ketamine from Holland on October 5, 2016.
Mr Gordon Richings, prosecuting, said the CPS will need time to decide whether to accept the pleas. He said the total value of the drugs which he has admitted possessing is around £600, while the drugs sent from Holland are worth more than £12,000.
