7. Regina v. D.A. [Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, Calgary – May 2010]

As a consequence of an ongoing police investigation involving confidential informants and surveillance the police executed a warrant to search residential premises in Calgary, Alberta. When the “tac team” entered the condominium our client (owner of the premises) was sitting on the couch in the living room. The police seized approximately $10,000.00 cash in plain view on the kitchen counter, a loaded handgun from the master bedroom and approximately one pound of cocaine from the premises. Following a one week Queen’s Bench trial verdicts of not guilty were entered on all charges.
