Pair plead not guilty to drug charge


Invercargi­ll: Two people injured in an explosion at an Invercargi­ll house last month have pleaded not guilty to the drug charge they face.

Samuel Paul Just (28) and Rebecca Anne Bower (27), both of Invercargi­ll, appeared in the Invercargi­ll District Court yesterday, where they were jointly charged with production of cannabis oil.

The charges were laid after an explosion at a property in Rothesay Pl in the suburb of Rockdale on September 9.

Three people were injured — two seriously — after a butane gas bottle exploded and a fire broke out.

Just and Bower were remanded to reappear on November 23.
