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.
