Meth charge after ‘kidnap’ drama


A woman caught up in the aftermath of an alleged kidnapping in Queenstown has pleaded guilty to a charge of possession of methamphetamine. 

Lilly Dianne Boden, 21, appeared before Judge Michael Turner at the Queenstown District Court yesterday on a joint charge, with Joshua Veint, 23, of the possession of methamphetamine. 

Police withdrew a second charge of possession of methamphetamine. 

Boden will be sentenced in February. 

Her lawyer, Liam Collins, says he will apply for a discharge without conviction. 

Boden was allegedly found with Veint in a remote hut near Glenorchy on December 3 after the latter was the subject of a five-day police manhunt. 

Turner remanded Boden on bail to February 9, imposing a condition of residence.
