Two men who travelled to a county music festival to supply drugs have been given prison sentences.

Alexander Stubbs and Felix Reade, both aged 21 and from London, were arrested in August 2012 at the Shambala Music Festival in Kelmarsh for drugs offences. They were later charged with possession with intent to supply Class A, B and C drugs.

At Northampton Crown Court on Friday, July 19, Stubbs was sentenced to two years and six months in prison, while Reade was sentenced to two years in prison.

Detective Constable Nick Coe, from the organised crime and drugs team, said: “They had travelled from their homes to the Shambala Music Festival in Kelmarsh, Northamptonshire, intent on dealing drugs. Excellent work by security at the festival resulted in their arrest and the recovery of their drugs.

“Further help by the Metropolitan Police led to the recovery of further drugs and drugs paraphernalia from their home addresses. This is a strong sentence for these two young men who had no prior convictions. Hopefully the result of this case sends the message to those entering Northamptonshire intent on dealing drugs that they are not welcome and they will be dealt with.”
