A man whose flat was found to contain an 'illegal drugstore' stocked with Ecstasy pills, heroin, cannabis, Ice and ketamine was sentenced yesterday to 11 years' jail. It took less than three hours for a jury to find Choi Chung-ming guilty of a single charge of trafficking in a dangerous drug stemming from a police raid on a flat in Ting Fu Street, Kowloon, in July last year. Police found 9,875 pills of a chemical cocktail commonly retailed as Ecstasy, 331.12 grams of herbal cannabis, 8.81 grams of methamphetamine hydrochloride, or Ice, 15.5 grams of heroin of 89.29 per cent purity, and 3.85 grams of ketamine powder. 'It was an illegal drugstore - a sort of illegal Watsons was operating out of this room,' said prosecutor Edward Laskey. 'There were so many pills that it was difficult to count them.' The court had heard Choi was arrested as he unlocked the door to the flat. He told police at the time that he had been holding the drugs for his boss. But during the trial, Choi said he had made the confessions under duress, that he was not aware that they could be used against him in court, and that police had told him what to say. Those arguments failed to convince the jury. Deputy High Court judge Peter Line said Choi was 'clearly taking a knowing and active part in the delivery of certain types of dangerous drugs from that room'. He was particularly concerned that a chemical cocktail contained methamphetamine, a far more potent, addictive and harmful ingredient than would normally be found in Ecstasy tablets, and one that carries far harsher punishment. Judge Line said the maker of the drugs had used methamphetamine to either make the pills stronger and more appealing to customers, or simply more addictive. 'Either would be a grave aggravation,' the judge told Choi, who has seven previous drug convictions.
