A 30-year-old Sockburn man charged with using counterfeit $20 banknotes has been remanded in custody without plea by a registrar at the Christchurch District Court today.

Glenn Stephen Bielawski, a driver, faced six charges. The registrar's remand meant that he did not need to appear before a judge in court.

He is charged with four offences from August last year: obtaining tyres and wheels by deception, dishonestly using four counterfeit banknotes, and unlawful possession of four forged banknotes.

Two further charges - unlawful possession of a Winchester shotgun and 22 shotgun shells - are dated last week.

The remand was granted for Bielawski to get legal advice.

Police allege counterfeit notes were used at shops in the Riccarton area.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
