One of the two men arrested for allegedly receiving seven of the 17 guns stolen from a Manaia home on May 11 will fight the charge.
Hawera's Vernan Ray Luke, 25, pleaded not guilty in Hawera District Court yesterday.
He will reappear on August 10. Luke was also convicted and discharged for breach of release conditions on a previous conviction.
