A 27-year-old South Burnett man facing more than 30 charges was remanded in custody when he appeared in Kingaroy Magistrates Court on Monday afternoon.

Robert David Castle entered no plea to a string of theft and drugs charges, traffic charges and the arson of a motor vehicle.

Charges include five counts of stealing, two counts of evading police, break and enter, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, arson and two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Castle also faces five charges of disqualified driving, three counts of driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, one count of wilful damage and a hooning offence.

Other charges include possessing drug utensils, possessing explosives (ammunition), three counts of enter premises and failing to appear.

These charges cover a period from March 21 to May 11 this year.

Castle also faces two counts alleging he supplied drugs within a correctional facility, dating to 2018.

Acting duty solicitor Mark Werner said there would be no application for bail.

Mr Werner said at least two of the charges would have to be dealt with at District Court level.

The matter was adjourned to July 8.
