Alleged gun manufacturer to face trial
A NORTH Lismore man accused of making guns and dealing drugs will stand trial this year.
Dale John Mitchell, 40, is accused of 12 counts of manufacturing a .22 calibre pistol without a permit, four counts of conspiring to modify a replica pistol, and supplying an indictable quantity of drugs.
He has pleaded guilty to the charges but has not entered a plea to a further 10 gun-related crimes.
Mitchell's trial is scheduled for May 15 and is expected to last five days.
