An Irish tourist found with 10 MDMA capsules at a Parramatta music festival on Sunday has escaped conviction after he argued the party drug is “not strong enough” in Australia and all of the pills were for his personal use.
David Crean, 32, was arrested at the Ultra Music festival and charged with supplying a prohibited drug after a sniffer dog sat down next to him when he entered Parramatta Park at about 1.45pm.
According to police facts, Mr Crean – who is in Australia on a two-week holiday – was “nervous” and “visibly shaking” when he was spoken to by police, and when an officer asked “be honest, do you have any drugs on you?”, he admitted he had drugs in his underwear.
Mr Crean told police he “did not intend on selling the capsules and planned on consuming all of them himself as the purity of MDMA in Australia is not strong enough”, the facts state.

THE WINNER FOR ME WOULD HAVE TO BE THE CHOICE OF “whatevers”, Nathan Fake’s “The Sky Was Pink – James Holden (top) Remix” (above).
IT’S A SKYSCRAPING TRACK AND NOTHING CAPTURES THE EARLY MORNING RAVE QUITE LIKE THIS GLITCHY MASTERPIECE THAT BUBBLES AND BUILDS TO A SOUL-SEARING CRESCENDO.
AND WITH A TITLE LIKE THAT HOW CAN YOU NOT THINK OF THE STRANGE COLOURS OF THE DUBLIN SKY AT 5AM WHILE YOU’RE WALKING HOME AND TRYING TO APPEAR NORMAL?
ALWAYS LEAVES ME WANTING MORE. JAMES HOLDEN’S “BLACKPOOL LATE EIGHTIES IS THE ONLY TRACK THAT APPROACHES THIS MASTERPIECE.
FYI MY OWN PERSONAL FAVOURITE WOULD BE …
….”SPAYCE” BY ANDHIM (above), FRENCH TECHNO-HOUSE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. i EXPERIENCED SYNAESTHESIA FOR THE FIRST TIME LISTENING TO THIS SONG ON A SUNDAY ON THE TRAILING END OF AN ACID TRIP IN THE RED COW HOTEL, RECOVERING AFTER A SESH IN THAT RANK WAREHOUSE IN BLUEBELLS – SO THAT’S MORE OF A PERSONAL PREFERENCE.
