An accused drug trafficker allegedly spent three days on the run from police after escaping arrest following a roadside drug test.
Ryan Wolfgang Erntner, 27, did not apply for bail when he appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday morning.
He is charged with trafficking in methylamphetamine and cannabis, possessing methylamphetamine, possessing property suspected of being stolen, escaping arrest and failing to stop for police.
The charges stem from allegations that police found methylamphetamine, cannabis and $6000 in cash at a home in Banks when they executed a search warrant on January 3. Mr Erntner was not home at the time.
Police said that about 9.30pm last Wednesday, they stopped Mr Erntner on Colquhoun Street in Kambah, where he returned a positive roadside drug test.
Mr Erntner was placed under arrest in relation to the drugs found in Banks, but police allege he "fled in his vehicle, driving at speed".
Shortly after this, officers saw the car being driven dangerously on Drakeford Drive.
Police found the car at a hotel in Curtin about 11.45pm on Saturday and arrested Mr Erntner, who was inside the hotel.
On Monday, Mr Erntner did not apply for bail and it was formally refused by Magistrate Bernadette Boss.
He was remanded in custody to appear in court again on February 4.
