A Red Deer woman was ordered to stand trial for possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking following a preliminary hearing in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday.

Stacey Joy Hogg, 24, will also face trial on possession of stolen property and possession of the proceeds of crime.

A preliminary is held to determine if there’s enough evidence to warrant an accused to be tried in Court of Queen’s Bench.

Charges were laid after Red Deer City RCMP searched a Red Deer residence on May 26, 2011.

Police previously said the RCMP Street Team executed a search warrant on the Red Deer residence on Duston Street and seized drugs, stolen property and cash.

Hogg has been in custody since Jan. 19 on other charges.

On Tuesday, she was denied bail and returns to court on April 2 for arraignment in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.
