A trial date was set on Thursday for a Saskatchewan man accused of trafficking magic mushrooms.

Shawn Bodnaruk, 24, of Kindersley will head to trial on Nov. 2 after his lawyer entered pleas of not guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

He was charged with possession and trafficking after police pulled his vehicle over for a minor traffic infraction in Red Deer on Feb. 25.

Further investigation led Red Deer city RCMP to search an apartment in Highland Green on Feb. 27. Police allege that investigators found about four kg of marijuana and various items associated with drug use. A man was arrested at the scene.

Stephan Dylan Senetza, 26, of Red Deer, was charged with trafficking drugs and possession for trafficking.

A preliminary hearing date of Nov. 2 was set on Thursday for Senetza. He will face Court of Queen’s Bench judge alone during the preliminary.
