A fifth man charged with participating in an organised criminal group dealing in methamphetamine arising from police raids on Head Hunters gang premises on Tuesday has appeared at the Christchurch District Court.
Carrick John Broadley, a 42-year-old contractor from Parklands, appeared at court a day after the other four men who were brought to the Court House only hours after the raids.
He appeared before a Community Magistrate on 10 charges, and was remanded in custody without plea to December 14. Unlike three of the other appearances on Tuesday, no name suppression was sought.
Broadley is charged with being a member of an organised criminal group selling the class A drug methamphetamine between September 6 and December 6, five charges of offering to supply the drug, and four charges of conspiring with another man named as part of the criminal group to supply the drug.
His appearance means that all five of the men named in the organised criminal group charges have now appeared in court.
