A MAN who was brought to Mon­day’s sit­ting of the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court in po­lice cus­tody, will re­main be­hind bars un­til his next court date on July 7.

Christo­pher James Duval has been charged with pos­sess­ing dan­ger­ous drugs and property sus­pected of hav­ing been used in con­nec­tion with the com­mis­sion of a drug of­fence. He is also charged with con­tra­ven­ing a po­lice di­rec­tion and pos­sess­ing a knife in a pub­lic place.

Po­lice have al­leged that Duval was found with methy­lam­phetamine in Mo­ran­bah on April 8, when his mo­bile phone was also checked.

Mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist said on June 18, Duval was found in pos­ses­sion of a knife on Tropic Road, Cannonvale. Po­lice have also al­leged he did not com­ply with a di­rec­tion to pro­vide his full and cor­rect name and date of birth.

All four charges were ad­journed to July 7, when Duval will ap­pear in court via a tele­phone link from the prison.
