A Red Deer man arrested during an undercover drug operation in Red Deer in 2011 was sentenced to three years in jail last week.
Jordan Hoelscher, 30, was charged after drugs, cash and drug paraphernalia were seized from a vehicle early on May 3, 2011.
Earlier, police said Hoelscher and another man were seen completing an exchange inside a pickup truck parked on 76th Street, just off of Gaetz Avenue.
Hoelscher pleaded guilty to three charges in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench on Thursday and received a three-year jail sentence for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking, a concurrent six-month jail sentence for possession of property over $5,000, and a concurrent 30-day jail sentence for failing to comply with an undertaking.
He was given a 10-year firearms prohibition.
Charges of trafficking of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and another failing to comply with an undertaking were withdrawn.
