Ex­tra­di­tion for wanted man

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

SOUTH Aus­tralian po­lice flew into the Whit­sun­days this week for the ex­tra­di­tion of a man wanted for traf­fick­ing con­trolled drugs.

Se­cu­rity was tight around Sa­muel John Ker­nich as he was led to the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court on Mon­day in hand cuffs.

The court was told his ex­tra­di­tion to South Australia was not op­posed and there was no ap­pli­ca­tion for bail.

Mag­is­trate Ron Muir­head or­dered Ker­nich to be de­liv­ered into the cus­tody of a nom­i­nated South Aus­tralian po­lice of­fi­cer for his re­turn to that state and forth­com­ing ap­pear­ance in the Ade­laide Court.

Of­fi­cer in Charge of the Whit­sun­day Po­lice Sta­tion, Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Simon Wal­ter, said Ker­nich was picked up at a Can­non­vale ad­dress where a search was con­ducted at 8.24am on Sun­day, March 22.

He said Ker­nich was not the per­son named on the search war­rant but he was there at the time and po­lice checks es­tab­lished he was a wanted man.
