IN COURT: Kevan Beria Greer has yet to plea to a string of charges.

Police have asked for more time to investigate a Christchurch man accused of getting schoolgirls to expose their breasts and bodies in return for drugs.

Kevan Beria Greer, 45, appeared before Judge Fred McElrea in the Christchurch District Court today and was further remanded on bail to July 22, without plea.

He faces charges of supplying drugs, and two charges of sexually exploiting young people. Police allege he sold drugs outside Burnside High School and was found with drugs and $14,000 cash in a van.

Police say they found cannabis, Ritalin pills, morphine sulphate tablets, scales, and resealable plastic bags.

Police also say they found a digital camera with images of girls on it.

Public Defence Service lawyer Kirsten Gray told the court that the police were seeking a two-week remand to enable them to complete their inquiries.

Greer remains on bail on strict conditions after it was granted on an appeal to the High Court after his initial remand in custody.
