One of the men charged after a drug lab was found in a central Wellington apartment a week ago has been remanded until next week to seek 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 Two similar charges were withdrawn by police.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 before his court appearance.

Wellington District Court Judge Heather Simpson remanded him in custody.

Dao was charged after police raided a Chews Ln apartment and found a P lab.

Occupants of the apartment building and nearby buildings were evacuated while police cleared the scene.
