9. Regina v. E.S. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – March, 2012]
During the course of a lengthy police investigation involving extensive surveillance the police observed our client meet with the primary target and engage in drug related activity. As a consequence of the foregoing the primary target and E.S. were arrested and searched. The police seized approximately a ½ pound of methamphetamine (“speed”), approximately 10 packets of crack cocaine, cash, six cellular phones and other contraband. Client charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking in cocaine, possession for the purpose of trafficking in methamphetamine and proceeds of crime. We were successful in having this matter dealt with at the preliminary inquiry by way of a guilty plea to simple possession of controlled substances and a $500.00 fine. All other charges (including both trafficking charges) were completely withdrawn.
