One of the men charged after a major undercover bust into an alleged LSD and ecstasy ring in Wanaka appeared in court yesterday.
Campbell Blair Smith appeared before Judge David Holderness in the Queenstown District Court for verification of a bail address.
Smith, 28, faces charges of supplying LSD and two charges of supplying ecstasy or an ecstasy analogue between August 31 and September 26.
No pleas were entered on Monday, when he was remanded in custody pending verification of a bail address in Wanaka.
Judge Holderness granted bail with conditions including an 8pm-7am curfew, no alcohol or illegal drugs, no entering licensed premises except supermarkets, and no contact with seven other defendants.
Daniel Miller, 29, plasterer, Oscar Jimmy Gold Arlidge, 28, and Daimon Jon Schwalger, 41, also appeared before Judge Holderness on Monday charged with a raft of alleged drug-dealing charges, including cannabis, LSD and ecstasy-related offending on dates between August and October.
Miller and Arlidge were remanded in custody without plea and Schwalger was remanded on bail without plea.
The defendants are expected to appear in court again on December 16.
Another man, Tomu William Filikitonga, 36, faces charges of cultivating cannabis and possession of cannabis on December 1.
