Three meth accused staying in custody

Three men arrested in a suspected methamphetamine supply ring have been remanded in custody at the Christchurch District Court.
Michael Heron, a 44-year-old concrete worker with no fixed abode, Riki William Wellington, a 26-year-old builder from Hei Hei, and Luke Samuel Mathers, a 23-year-old security officer from New Brighton were all charged with possession of methamphetamine for supply, and possession of a psychoactive substance for supply.
Heron and Wellington were also charged with unlawful possession of a pistol.
Mathers applied for bail, but the police supplied a written opposition to it, and Judge Brian Callaghan refused the application. Wellington and Heron did not apply for bail and were remanded without plea.
Police said several searches of addresses and vehicles across the city were executed yesterday, and more than 500g of methamphetamine, over $100,000 cash, and a loaded pistol were found, and four cars were seized.
