A woman has been charged for allegedly bringing in 879 MDMA capsules into the Knockout Circuz rave in Sydney on Saturday night.

As SMH reports, 20-year-old Mary Naioko was refused bail on Sunday for the astounding number of pills found.

Police and sniffer dogs also charged 35 people with various drug offences — a 21-year-old had 200 MDMA capsules confiscated and another 19-year-old had 103 capsules. Both were granted conditional bail. 

Organised by Harder Styles United, the sold-out rave at Hordern Pavilion had 5,000 attendees and featured artists Bioweapon, Wasted Penguinz, Code Black and more.
