Police Make 74 Drug Busts At Small NSW Music Festival

Seventy four punters attending the recent four-day Dragon Dreaming Music Festival near Yass in New South Wales, were found to be in possession of illegal drugs, according to NSW Police who were left “disappointed” with the large haul.

According to The Canberra Times, a crowd of 2,500 people attended the festival which was monitored by 18 police and two drug detection dogs. The police’s haul contained a whole host of illicit substances including heroin, ice, mushrooms as well as cannabis and ecstasy.

The doof ran from Friday, 24th October through to Monday, 27th October in Wee Jasper, a location near Yass in NSW. Of those arrested, two were for the supply of drugs. Police also ran an operation targeting drug-driving and amongst those stopped, another two people were also arrested after allegedly testing positive to drugs.

“Police were kept busy during the festival with 17 people found with prohibited drugs in the first two hours of the operation,” said Inspector Evan Quarmby in a statement. “To end up with 74 drug detections is a major concern and police will work closely with festival organisers to ensure future events are safe for everyone attending.”

As pointed out by TheMusic, the festival posted on their Facebook event yesterday appealing for information on the whereabouts of Joel Kamerman, who attended the festival and his father has not been able to get in touch with him since.

Various people have commented on the thread, reporting they had seen Kamerman recently. Anyone with information is still advised to contact the festival.
