Man tried to 'pass off' steroids as ecstasy at Kendal Calling, jury hears

Nov 19, 2018

This alleges possession of a controlled class C drug - the anabolic steroid, methandienone - with intent to supply. Obaid's trial began today at Carlisle Crown Court, where Joseph Dowsett told a jury he was employed as security staff member at the festival site near Penrith last year. At around 10.30pm on July 28, Mr Dowsett said he was approached by a man who asked: "Do you want to buy any pills?" After being allegedly offered "four for 30 quid", Mr Dowsett said he revealed he was a security employee. After calling for backup, he saw blue heart-shaped pills in the man's bag. Prosecutor Julian Goode said 213 tablets - unlawful to supply but not possess - were recovered from Obaid along with £265 cash.
