FES­TI­VAL CRACK­DOWN IS LIKE A WALK IN THE PARK

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

DRUGS — and cops — were ev­ery­where at yes­ter­day’s Lis­ten Out fes­ti­val in Cen­ten­nial Park.

Scores of uni­formed and plain-clothes po­lice, plus snif­fer dogs, spent the day march­ing out any­one who smelt of drugs. And as the evening wore on, cops took to dirt bikes to chase sus­pects around the park, ar­rest­ing this young man, among oth­ers.

“Oi bro, are you on?” one young fel­low asked our re­porter Jack Mor­phet through the clenched teeth typ­i­cal of MDMA fans.

In­side there was an­other tell­tale sign of drugs: empty con­doms lit­ter­ing toi­let floors — hav­ing been ex­tracted from where the sun don’t shine.
