Glasgow teenager in court after admitting selling drugs at Daresbury dance festival
A TEENAGER from Glasgow has admitted travelling to the Creamfields dance festival in Halton to sell pills.
Liam Kenneth Packer, aged 19, pleaded guilty to an attempt to possess MDMA with intent at Halton Magistrates Court.
It heard how Packer was at the festival in Daresbury over August bank holiday weekend last year.
Alison Warburton, prosecuting, said the defendant was seen by police selling pills in the camping area.
He admitted having a pouch in his shorts where 26 white tablets were concealed.
The court heard they were later found to not contain a controlled substance, but Packer had been selling them under the impression they were ecstasy.
During a police interview, Packer claimed he was planning to divide the pills up with friends after paying £100 for them.
They would have had a street value at the festival of between £260 and £520, if sold as ecstasy, the court heard.
The hearing on Friday, March 14 was adjourned as there was dispute over whether Packer was a 'social' dealer, or a 'street dealer'.
