A Sylvan Lake man arrested on drug trafficking charges has pleaded not guilty in Red Deer provincial court.

Eddie Daniel Rogers, 34, was arrested by Sylvan Lake RCMP at about 10 p.m. on Aug. 24.

Police reported at the time that the arresting officer pulled a vehicle over on Lakeshore Drive for speeding, alleging that a subsequent search of the vehicle uncovered a “large quantity” of cash and a number of Percocet pills.

Rogers was charged with possession of drugs for traffic and possession of the proceeds of crime.

Released from custody on $2,000 cash bail, Rogers pleaded not guilty and asked for a preliminary inquiry before proceeding to trial.

The hearing has been set for July 18 in Red Deer.

A preliminary inquiry is used to determine the strength of the Crown’s case against an accused person.
