TWO Wagga men have pleaded not guilty to drug charges after about $100,000 worth of cannabis was found in their vehicle at Hay.
Scott Macklan, 45, of Glenfield Park, and 41-year-old Scott Michael Bradley, of Ashmont, have each been charged with (deemed) supply of cannabis greater than the indictable quantity.
They have also been charged with possessing a prohibited drug.
The men proclaimed their innocence in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday. Their solicitor, David Barron, said they had no knowledge of the cannabis in the vehicle.
Police claim they found 10.5 kilograms of cannabis in sealed bags in the back of the vehicle after it was stopped for a random breath test on the Sturt Highway in the early hours of November 15.
They were bailed to Hay Local Court on January 4, but the matters were relisted to Wagga for a bail variation.
Magistrate Erin Kennedy reduced reporting conditions from seven days a week to one day a week. The case was adjourned back to Hay Local Court on February 15 for reply to the prosecution’s brief of evidence.
