Drug Supply and Proceeds of Crime Charges Dropped

CRIMINAL CASE

All charges were withdrawn and dismissed in Downing Centre Local Court for our 30 year old client from Italy after the analysis of the alleged prohibited drugs came back negative.

Police observed our client approaching several people and selling capsules to patrons at the ‘AVIICI’ concert at Centennial Parklands, Sydney.

They searched him and located 73 tablets and capsules resembling ‘ecstacy’ in 4 separate resealable bags. They also found $770 cash on him.

He was then charged with ‘supply prohibited drug‘ and ‘deal with property suspected of being proceeds of crime’.

The substances were then analysed and found to be a legal drug known as ‘Lofton’.

It is important to note that the law says a person is guilty of drug supply even if they supply tablets that contain no drugs at all, as long as they sell them as if they were drugs.

Despite this, our defence team persuaded the prosecution to withdraw all charges on the basis that there was insufficient evidence to prove that our client was selling the substances as illegal drugs.
