32. Regina v. K.I [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – December, 2011]
Client was working the till at a downtown restaurant/takeout when the police came through the door with a warrant to search the premises. As a consequence of that search the police seized approximately 600 grams of powder and crack cocaine in various locations throughout the establishment as well as crack cocaine production paraphernalia and cash. K.I. (and others) were charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, production of crack cocaine, proceeds of crime and related offences. On day one of the preliminary inquiry we were successful in having all charges against K.I. completely withdrawn. We were also successful in securing an order directing that all cash seized from K.I. be returned forthwith.
