A Dorroughby man will face a hearing in October over the alleged commercial cultivation and supply of cannabis and possessing stolen unauthorised rifles.
On May 31, Richmond Local Area Command police conducted a search of a Dorroughby property and allegedly located 76 cannabis plants.
Further searches of the premises allegedly uncovered 10.6 kg of cannabis and two stolen rifles, a Boito single-barrel 410 shotgun and a Winchester rifle.
After investigations by police, Christopher Georgian Allen was arrested and taken to Lismore police station.
There he was charged with knowingly taking part in the cultivation of a prohibited plant, possession of a prohibited drug, two counts of possessing an unauthorised firearm, Deemed supply prohibited drug and receiving stolen property.
Court documents revealed it is alleged Mr Allen knew ‘when he received the said property (two rifles) he knew the same to have been stolen.’
On Monday at Lismore Local Court Mr Allen was represented by solicitor Tracey Randall.
The court heard fingerprints and DNA material from Mr Allen that was sent to be analysed were still outstanding.
Statements from three police officers were also yet to be served with evidence, court documents stated.
Magistrate David Heilpern ordered the brief of evidence against Mr Allen to be served on the defence by September 5, and adjourned his matters until September 11.
At Mr Allen’s next court appearance his pleas of not guilty and the hearing date of October 13 will be confirmed.
