Drugs in undies case adjourned

AAP logoAAP 25/07/2016

A man charged with trafficking drugs in his underpants through Hobart Airport has made a brief court appearance, with his lawyer indicating a willingness to plea.

Sniffer dogs bailed up Joseph Roy Wallner, 22, on July 1 after he disembarked a flight from Sydney and police say a subsequent search found the illegal drug ice hidden in his underwear.

The quantity of drug was allegedly worth $280,000 and Wallner was charged with trafficking and two counts of travelling under a false name.

"He's due to plea," a lawyer told court on Tuesday after requesting a one-week adjournment.

Wallner, who is in custody, faced court by video link but will face a magistrate in-person on August 3 to enter pleas.
