Client was one of several targets of a six month police investigation involving ongoing surveillance and the ultimate search of multiple residences by way of warrants to search. The police seized substantial quantities of cocaine, cash and related material and our client was charged with possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, proceeds of crime and weapons offences. The matter was scheduled for preliminary inquiry but at the commencement of proceedings we detected a potentially fatal flaw in the warrant to search. The Crown conceded the ostensible strength of our legal position in this regard and the entire prosecution was resolved by way of a guilty plea to simple possession of cocaine and a $1,000.00 fine. All other charges were completely withdrawn.
