Three men charged with a $40 Friday night robbery at Rangiora have appeared at the Christchurch District Court.

Twenty-one-year-old Cai Evans, has denied the joint charge of robbing a man on Friday, and a charge of unlawful possession of a sawn-off shotgun at Rangiora on Tuesday. He elected trial by jury and was remanded to a case review hearing on July 25.

Community magistrate Jo Sihamu refused bail and remanded him in custody.

Jac Rhys Howells, 20, who lives at the same Rangiora address as Evans, faced the robbery charge and a charge of possession of cannabis. He applied for bail but the hearing was adjourned to Thursday so that the police could check the proposed bail address.

Heremai Steven Te Wake, 31, of Ohoka, faced a charge of robbery, two of unlawful possession of a .22 rifle, cultivation and possession of cannabis. He was also remanded in custody to Thursday for a check of a proposed bail address.
