A Lyttelton man accused of a series of Picton boat burglaries has entered not guilty pleas to all charges.
Forty-two-year-old Sean Patrick Clark denies nine charges of burglary, two of theft, and one each of unlawfully carrying a firearm, theft of a vehicle, and receiving stolen property.
Defence counsel David Goldwater entered the not guilty pleas for Clark at an application in the Christchurch District Court for Clark's release on electronically monitored bail to live at his mother's home on the Kapiti Coast, Wellington.
Judge Tony Couch heard the application and then declined to release Clark. He was remanded in custody for a case review hearing on September 2.
