A COUPLE were each jailed for five and a half years after admitting selling drugs at raves.

Disc jockey Adrian Woods and his girlfriend Lindsay Vaughan were arrested after more than £2,000 worth of drugs including ketamine, LSD, ecstasy and amphetamine were found when police raided their home at Grange Cottages, Mareham on the Hill, in May 2010.

Christopher Lowe, prosecuting, told Lincoln Crown Court: "There was a systematic search and drugs were found around the property.

"Weighing scales, bags used to package drugs and caffeine were also seized."

Mr Lowe said that Vaughan's mobile phone contained "numerous and repeated" messages for the supply of drugs.

"They related essentially to the supply of ketamine but there were also requests for other drugs."

The couple were arrested but denied any involvement in drugs supply and were released on bail.

Woods and Vaughan moved to live in West Street, Horncastle, but a second police raid in August 2010 led to the discovery of more than £700 worth of ketamine.

Woods, 27, who now lives in Mareham Road, Horncastle, and Vaughan, 31, now of Kenmore Drive, Woodhall Spa, each admitted six charges of possession of drugs with intent to supply on May 13, 2010 involving drugs including ketamine, LSD, Ecstasy and amphetamine.

Both also admitted possession of ketamine with intent to supply on August 6, 2010. Judge Sean Morris, passing sentence, said the couple had operated as a team and had supplied drugs on a commercial basis.

He told Woods: "You were the person who had the disc jockeying equipment which you used to smuggle these drugs into raves and parties but the two of you were very much a team."

Andrew Cogan, for Vaughan, said some of the drugs were for their own use but some were for sale to other people.

He said Vaughan, who worked as an acupuncturist, had been addicted at the time.

Andrea Clarke, for Woods, said he was a disc jockey who was involved in organising raves.

She said: "He regrets his actions. It started off a as a group buy. It primarily started at raves."
