Defence counsel Fran McCracken told Magistrate Reg Marron that a disputed facts hearing was necessary to resolve a factual dispute over the value of the items on two further charges of possess a restricted substance and possession of a controlled drug on January 29 last year.
Ms McCracken said there was a significant difference between the police prosecution estimate and the defence position.
