A young Thurgoona man facing 18 charges after police allegedly found a large stash of weapons and drugs in his home will remain behind bars.
He decided against making an application for bail on Thursday.
Appearing in the Albury Local Court dock in black pants and a frayed, sleeveless beige T-shirt, Connor Tristian Thorn-Barnstable, 22, made no comment as his matter was adjourned to October 29.
He also wore a fresh, large bruise on his upper left arm.
His arrest came out of a Murray Police District investigation into an alleged home invasion in Thurgoona.

More than 80 items were seized, including drugs, mobile phones, computers, a firearm and prohibited weapons, along with more than $50,000 in cash.
Police used the alleged discovery of a large number of gel blasters among the haul to warn the wider community that such items were defined as firearms in NSW.
This, police said, meant anyone who possessed such a weapon must also have "relevant licencing or permits".
Defence lawyer Sue Robey said she have given Thorn-Barnstable some "detailed advice".
"He has no (criminal) history at all," she said.
"Sensibly, he has taken the decision to reserve his decision on bail."
He is charged with possess an unregistered firearm or pistol, not keep a firearm or pistol safely, possess ammunition without a permit or licence, dealing with the proceeds of crime, four counts of possess or use a prohibited weapon without a permit, supply cannabis at less than an indictable or commercial quantity, three counts of supply a prohibited drug and five counts of possess prohibited drugs.
