One of the men charged after a drug lab was found in an inner city apartment a week ago has been remanded until next week to ask for bail.

Kien Trung Dao, 22 has not yet pleaded to two charges of possessing methamphetamine for supply.  Two similar charges were withdrawn by police.

Dao had been expected to ask for bail today but was unable to supply an address that could be approved by police in time for his court appearance.

Wellington District Court judge Heather Simpson remanded him in custody.

Dao was charged after police raided a Chews Lane apartment and unexpectedly found a P lab.  Occupants of the apartment building and near by buildings were evacuated while the police cleared the scene.
