Charges pile up for man arrested over drugs and weapons
New charges have been laid against a Red Deer man arrested earlier this month on drugs and weapons charges and then released on $1,500 bail.
Brian Randall Buxton, 31, was arrested in late October along with Sylvan Lake resident Summer Brook Kreiser, 29, by Red Deer City RCMP following up on surveillance of a house in Inglewood.
Arrested by police officers making a traffic stop on Oct. 23, Buxton and Kreiser are co-accused on a variety of offences stemming from items police allege were seized from the pickup truck in which they were travelling.
The charges include four counts each of possession of drugs for trafficking along with additional charges of possession of property obtained by crime and possession of weapons for a dangerous purpose, including bear spray and a baseball bat.
Both were later released from custody and ordered to return to court on Nov. 15 to enter their pleas.
Buxton was re-arrested and returned to court on Thursday to answer charges arising from an incident on Sept. 19, including impaired driving, one count of possession of morphine, and additional accounts of possession of drugs for trafficking, including cocaine, methamphetamine and psilocybin (magic mushrooms).
He remains in custody pending a new bail hearing, set for Nov. 22, when he is also to enter pleas on the additional charges.
