27. Regina v. E.O. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – September 2014]

During the course of surveillance the police observed what they believed to be three separate drug (cocaine) transactions involving the same vehicle. Consequently, the police stopped that vehicle and arrested the four occupants. A search of the vehicle failed to turn up any cocaine but a search of EO revealed the presence of approximately $8,000.00 cash. The police charged EO with possessing proceeds of crime. Bottom Line: Through negotiation Patrick Fagan was successful in resolving this prosecution by way of a complete withdrawal of the charge.
