Naked jogger had cocaine

Daily Echo: Stock image of cocaine Stock image of cocaine

A MAN was seen jogging naked near his home when police swooped to execute a search warrant at the premises he shared with his girlfriend.

Officers saw Gary Whetren about 100 metres away as they arrived at about 8am on a June morning but he absconded to his grandmother’s house where he was later arrested.

Prosecutor Siobhan Linsley said a search of the premises revealed 93 wraps of cocaine and some cocaine which had a combined street value of about £5,500.

When questioned, Whetren remained silent but his girlfriend, Beau Mason, admitted to being a recreational user of cocaine.

Whetren, 24, of Manor Road, New Milton, pleaded guilty to possessing the drugs which a judge heard was intended for friends and acquaintances. He was jailed for 18 months.

Mason, 23, of Treagore Road, Calmore, admitted allowing her home to be used for their supply.

As defence barrister David Reid was about to start his mitigation, Recorder Ben Compton QC said he was following the probation report recommendation and gave her a two-year community order with 18 months supervision.

Andrew Coley, defending, said Whetren – who had 15 previous convictions – had since sought help for his drug abuse which he accepted not only affected him but also his family.

Passing sentence at Southampton Crown Court, the judge said he had played a significant role in the case and had partly been motivated by financial gain.

“It seems you may have turned a corner but a custodial sentence is inevitable.”

The judge told the motherof- one who had three previous convictions she had been given a huge opportunity.

“If you want to go on a life of cocaine use, it is a massive tension between that and bringing up a young child, which is difficult enough as it is,” he said.

Jogging naked? really? or just legging it straight out of bed when he realised the law were after him?

And how was the nudity, which is perfectly legal, relevant to the story. Made a better headline than just cocaine dealer caught i suppose.

Have you ever heard of the Naked Rambler? If not, look him up. Then you won't say that legging it round the place starkers is "perfectly legal"
Was a good headline though. I'd expected it to say he'd 10K's worth of the stuff up his jacksy. That's how much of it enters the country (don't know what that makes the clowns who stick the filthy rubbish up their noses)

Actually the naked rambler was locked up for failing to comply with an ASBO, ASBOs are used when there is no actual offence committed and someone decides that the person is just being antisocial. It is different in Scotland.

I don't think this bloke intended to be a 'naked jogger' - He just happened not be dressed when he jumped out of the window.
But it makes a headline.

In the probably foolish belief that someone reads what you and I say X Old Bill and might be tempted to try it by what you say, may I tell you that the last time Stephen Gough aka the Naked Rambler appeared at Banbury Magistrates Court the charge was outraging public decency?
He was remanded in custody for committal to the Crown court where he actually pleaded to section 5 POA and was sent on his way with a smack on the bottom. So, children DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

Dai Rear,

Sorry, my mistake . I apparently haven't been following his career in sufficient detail.
Thanks for the update.

The Sexual Offences Act, which replaced the relevant part of the Vagrancy Act removed much of the power to deal with such things and so 'other means' must be sought - including Common Law.

Oh the SRA. Part of the legacy of the Quinn-Blunkett saga like so much of the really bad criminal legislation 97-2010. Why didn't the arrogant twit not take notice of your colleagues X Old Bill , his Scotland yard minders when they said "I wouldn't touch it sir, it's as mad as a bag of snakes and it'll only hurt you" How right they were! The bad criminal justice legislation will continue to hurt for decades.
