POLICE have dropped a commercial drug supply allegation against a man accused of possessing ice and magic mushrooms after the drugs were found in a car stop.
Brendon William Andersen is on bail, and is set to front a hearing later this year, after denying some of the other charges against him
Andersen was allegedly in possession of the drug haul when officers stopped the Ford Territory he was driving on the New England Highway, earlier this year.
He appeared in Armidale Local Court and pleaded guilty to driving while suspended; and four counts of possessing drugs.
Two other drug possession charges from a separate incident will also be dealt with in sentencing on the same day after he admitted to the offences.
He's denied two charges of supplying an indictable quantity of drugs.
Magistrate Roger Prowse set the case down for a two-hour hearing in September in Glen Innes Local Court, and continued Andersen's bail.
A charge of supplying a commercial quantity of drugs was withdrawn by prosecutors and dismissed in court.
He was initially denied bail by police, but was granted conditional release by the court after he was charged.
New England highway patrol officers intercepted the Territory travelling south, about 8km north of Glen Innes, about 9.30am on March 19.
Police said the car was stopped for a random traffic stop before the 40-year-old driver returned a positive roadside drug test.
Officers then claim checks revealed the man's licence was suspended, and they searched the car.
Inside, they uncovered what they claim is a quantity of magic mushrooms, cannabis, cocaine, methylamphetamine, and other drug paraphernalia.
