11. Regina v. R.B. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Calgary – April, 2012]

As a result of a police investigation involving extensive surveillance police ultimately secured warrants to search several motor vehicles and a residence. From a motor vehicle registered to R.B. the police discovered a sophisticated hidden compartment containing approximately three kilograms of cocaine and a smaller quantity of ecstasy. At the residence (where R.B. was apprehended/arrested) the police seized several additional ounces of cocaine and close to $10,000.00 in cash. As a result of the foregoing R.B. was charged with possession of cocaine and ecstasy for the purpose of trafficking as well as possessing proceeds of crime. On day one of the preliminary inquiry we were successful in killing this most serious prosecution against R.B. by way of a complete withdrawal of all charges.
