A MAN charged in connection with Tamworth's alleged 'ice castle' has pleaded not guilty to all charges after fronting court for the first time.
Scott Morrissey, 40, is charged with the supply of more than an indictable quantity of prohibited drugs; receiving stolen property; and contributing to criminal activity.
Morrissey appeared before Magistrate John Chicken in Maitland Local Court on Wednesday.
After the not guilty pleas, Mr Chicken ordered a brief of evidence to be served on Morrissey's defence solicitor by mid-November.
He was granted bail after his arrest last month, and his bail was continued in court. The matter will return to court at the end of November.
The 40-year-old man was arrested at his home in Aberglassyn shortly after 7am on September 10 by police from Strike Force Radius and taken to Maitland Police Station and charged.
Twenty-six people have been charged in connection to Strike Force Radius.
The secret police sting is the joint work of Oxley detectives and the Oxley Target Action Group and was set up to investigate the supply of illicit drugs and firearms in the Tamworth area.
Police allege the centre of the operation was housed at a Petra Avenue unit in South Tamworth, which was allegedly referred to as the 'ice castle'.
The unit was raided in a series of search warrants executed across Tamworth by police in May which culminated in dozens of arrests.
Several men and women remain behind bars on drug and firearm charges.
