Two 18 year olds to appear in court over possession of laughing gas with intent to supply after Swanley rave arrests

By Ed McConnell

Two teenagers will appear in court after being arrested on suspicion of supplying laughing gas at a rave.

A man from Welwyn Garden City and a woman from Barnet, both 18, have been issued with postal requisitions for possession of psychoactive drugs with intent to supply.

They were arrested in Swanley following an illegal rave on Sunday, August 6, and officers seized canisters containing nitrous oxide — also known as laughing gas.

They will appear at Maidstone Magistrates’ Court on Friday, December 29.

Last month three men denied organising the warehouse rave, which caused more than £30,000 of damage.

About 500 revellers descended on the industrial unit in Mark Way, Swanley, and 12 people, aged between 17 and 41, were arrested on suspicion of offences including drug possession, criminal damage and theft, although most were later released without charge.

Equipment was seized from the scene and in October Germantas Citavicius, Tomas Rudzevicius and Lee Johnston were summonsed to court.

Citavicius, 19, of Thornton Heath, London; Rudzevicius, 20, of Dagenham, Essex; and Johnston, 29, of Tring, Hertfordshire, admitted they were present but claim they did not organise the unlicensed event.

They will appear at Maidstone Crown Court next Friday.
