Two Wisbech teenagers in court charged with possessing ketamine with intent to supply

TWO teenagers from Wisbech have appeared before Fenland magistrates charged with possessing ketamine with intent to supply.

Stefan Booty and Samuel Chambers, both 19, face one charge relating to the Class C drug, which is used by vets as a horse tranquiliser.

Ketamine was made illegal five years ago after it became increasingly popular on Britain’s dance scene. A hallucinogen, its side effects include nausea and sedation.

Chambers, of Church Drove, Outwell, is charged with possessing a Class C drug with intent to supply.

Booty, of Chestnut Avenue, Welney, faces one charge of possessing the Class C drug, one charge concerning the supply of the drug and one charge of possessing a Class C drug with intent to supply. He faces one further charge of possessing cannabis - a Class B drug.

The case was adjourned for a further hearing at Wisbech Magistrates’ Court on February 9. Both teenagers were given unconditional bail.
