Regina v. J.B. [Provincial Court of Alberta, Airdrie – June 2016]

J.B. was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. J.B. was alleged to have sold drugs out of a house in small town Alberta. The reputation of the house led the citizens of the community to commence an investigation into the conduct of the residents. Their investigation ultimately resulted in the police commencing their own investigation. The police investigated the house, its occupants, and ultimately executed a warrant on the house. Marijuana was found throughout the house, and J.B. was the only person present in the house when the warrant was executed. On the day of trial, the Crown conceded the strength of Sean Fagan’s position and withdrew all charges.
