Listen Out 2013 Melbourne took place at the Royal Botanic Gardens yesterday, with a statement released by Victoria Police indicating that the day yielded a $10,000 drug bust for the police. Police had previously praised the conduct of punters at the Brisbane leg of the event.

ABC News reports that $10,000 worth of the designer drug MDMA was seized by police at the Listen Out event on Saturday. Police utilised sniffer dogs to target drugs at the event, ending in 13 arrests and the charging of a 28-year-old man from Brighton with “trafficking a drug of dependence.”

The man is currently out on bail and will face court at a later date, with the other 12 arrested assigned drug treatment programs. Police also seized smaller amounts of MDMA, as well as cocaine and prescription drugs.
