Regina v. A.M. [Peace River Provincial Court, March 2012]

A.M. was the target of ongoing police surveillance during which the police observed activity consistent with drug trafficking. Police allegedly made several undercover purchases of cocaine from A.M. and thereafter executed a search warrant on his vehicle and home. A.M. was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, weapons and possession of proceeds of crime. In the final result this matter was dealt with by way of a finding of guilt to simple possession of a controlled substance and a $1,000.00 fine was imposed. All other charges (including the charge of trafficking) were completely withdrawn and the money that had been seized by the police was returned to A.M.
