20. Regina v. D.M. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Drumheller – September, 2011]

The police observed our client operating a motor vehicle and recognized him as a person for whom there were several outstanding arrest warrants. Our client was stopped, arrested and searched. As a consequence of that search the police seized an “8-ball” of cocaine, a bundle of cash and a set of triple beam scales. Our client was charged with possession of cocaine and proceeds of crime. Through negotiation with the Agent for the Federal Department of Justice we were successful in having both charges against our client completely withdrawn.
