NHS Healthcare Worker Jailed For Taking 9g Of Cocaine Into Music Festival

Over 693 personnel were sent by the police department.

An NHS worker has been arrested and jailed after she was caught carrying and smuggling cocaine to Creamfields festival. 21-year-old Courtney Healy from Maesteg had 14 wraps of cocaine on her, ready to receive her payment for driving over 200 miles from South Wales for it.

The music festival has been infamously labeled as the “world’s biggest drug festival in Europe” now due to rampant illegal drug distribution at the event.

The cocaine Healy carried weighed 8.9 grams and was found in a search tent at the event that had 693 police to maintain order. They are worth anywhere around £420 – £1,100, depending on the quality. Healy’s weak argument was that she carried them for her friends.

But a text message revealed that she was getting paid £200 to smuggle them in.

And that text message was in a group chat of people who discussed among each other how they planned to smuggle the drugs in.

One of them could be seen texting, “Oh my god I am dreading this, you are all smackheads.”

Healy also admitted to being a marijuana addict and replied to someone in there, “I smoke it every day. I feel like I might rip someone’s head off otherwise. My mum would actually send me to jail if she found out I done it.”

Her defender Bernice Campbell said she was at a “low point” in her life and maintained a “devil-may-care” attitude.

Healy pleaded guilty and was sentenced to three years in prison. Judge Steven Everett commented, “Yes, she can hang her head. This is not a naïve young woman, is it? It shows she is completely enveloped in the drug culture and is very blasé about it.”

“You can’t be both – a health care support worker and somebody that is involved in the supply of terrible class A drugs. And you chose the latter.”
