In early 2017 the Calgary Police Service was involved in an undercover drug investigation targeting V.H.. The police eventually made an evidentiary purchase of cocaine from V.H. (allegedly), which was captured on film. Further attempts were made to purchase cocaine by the police without any luck for several weeks. Finally a second transaction was arranged. When V.H. attended for the meet the police arrested him and searched his vehicle. There they located large amounts of cocaine, marijuana and cash. V.H. was charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana for the purpose of trafficking contrary to s. 5(2) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA), trafficking in cocaine x 2 contrary to s. 5(1) of the CDSA and possession of proceeds of crime. Ms. Fagan alleged that her client had been entrapped in violation of his rights as guaranteed by section 7 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
BOTTOM LINE: All charges against V.H. were stayed (i.e. the prosecution against him was brought to an end).
