DRUGS CHARGE: District councillor Jack Bullock.

The Whanganui councillor arrested and charged with possessing cannabis has been remanded until next month so he can try to complete diversion.

Jack Thomas Bullock, 23, was arrested in November after police searched his house.

He was offered the chance to complete diversion, and was supposed to appear in the Whanganui District Court this morning for plea.

However, he has been remanded until next month so he can try to complete diversion.

In December, he told Fairfax Media he had to undergo drugs and alcohol counselling before diversion would be granted.

Bullock was one of 17 people arrested in November, after police searched 15 properties across Whanganui.

Those arrested were charged with various drug offences, including supplying and possessing methamphetamine.
