AN 'immature man' who got a job at Creamfields to sell drugs has been jailed.

David Bond, 22, deliberately gained employment at Creamfields to sell drugs after he admitted to possession of drugs with the intent to supply.

Chester Crown Court heard that Bond was involved in a discussion about how easy it would be to do so.

Bond, of Oxford, was stopped as part of checks and there were ‘bins everywhere and notices galore’, said prosecutor Joanne Moore.

He was found to have 49 snap bags of ketamine on him containing 31 grams of the drug which would have amounted to £1,960.

It was also heard that Bond has dealt for a length of time as shown by flare messages and he was ‘very fortunate to just be charged with ketamine’.

Defending, Jemma Gordon, said that Bond’s guilty plea should be kept in mind. She added that Bond was ‘relatively immature at the time’.

Ms Gordon said it was ‘financial pressures’ that led Bond to supply the drugs as well as carrying and transpiring a substantial amount of cash in a separate case.

She spoke of his ‘realistic chance of rehabilitation’ and that he is someone ‘who can work and will work with probation'.

Recorder Simon Parrington said: “When you went to Creamfields you must have seen the bins and notices that make it absolutely clear that if you carry on you would be searched.

“Creamfields is well known for being a very significant festival of its type. You choose to ignore the warnings.

“I have no doubt at all that you have been involved in commercial dealing."

Bond was sentenced to 15 months in prison, an order was made for the forfeit and destruction of the drugs and Bond is to pay a victim surcharge.
