Shepton woman in court for Glastonbury Festival drugs
A SHEPTON Mallet woman has appeared in court charged with allegations of drug dealing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Ruby Tulett, aged 21, of Laurel Cottages, Lamyatt, was charged that on June 27 at Glastonbury she was in possession of a quantity of cocaine with intent to supply to another.
She was further alleged to have been in possession of an amount of ecstasy with intent to supply and also been in possession of a quantity of cannabis.
Prosecutor Julyan Stephens said the mattes came to light after the defendant was arrested at the festival site and a quantity of drugs were discovered inside her tent.
The defendant did not enter pleas to any of the allegations and the court heard that the drugs seized by the police were worth a total of around £700.
The magistrates refused to accept jurisdiction for the case and ordered Tulett to stand trial at Taunton Crown Court.
They adjourned all matters until Monday October 21 when she must attend a preliminary hearing there and in the meantime released her on unconditional bail.
