Crown prosecutors have separated the charges laid against two people arrested on drug and weapons charges during a traffic stop in Red Deer on Oct. 23.

Police charged Brian Randall Buxton, 31, of Red Deer and Summer Brook Kreiser, 29, of Sylvan Lake with a variety of offences, including possession of a variety of drugs for trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Buxton faces additional charges relating to a previous event, including drug offences, weapons offences, aggravated assault and impaired driving.

Released on a recognizance earlier, Kreiser returns to court on Dec. 13 to enter a plea on the charges against her.

She was jointly accused with Buxton on the Oct. 23 charges. However, the two matters were separated in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

Buxton, who remains in custody, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to all of the charges.

He has elected to be tried by judge alone in Court of Queen’s Bench on the Oct. 23 charges, with a court date to be determined during his arraignment, set for Feb. 4.
