An Adelaide man arrested on drugs charges by police in Darwin could face up to 25 years' jail when his case goes to the Northern Territory Supreme Court later this year.

Brett Corey Tippett, 40, was released on bail from the Darwin Magistrates Court today.

Police arrested him at the weekend in relation to the alleged possession of tainted goods.

They seized $37,000 dollars in cash, which they allege Mr Tippett was posting to Adelaide as payment for drugs.

Mr Tippett's lawyer argued his client was a family man who had no links to criminal activity, but the police prosecutor disputed that.

Magistrate Greg Smith said Mr Tippett's case would not be heard for at least six months because it carried a head sentence of 25 years' imprisonment.

He granted bail, with a $5,000 surety, on the condition that Mr Tippett did not contact three other people facing related drugs charges.
