A preliminary hearing goes in October for a woman facing drugs and weapons charges after a traffic stop in Red Deer last October.

Sylvan Lake resident Summer Brook Kreiser, 30, and Brian Randall Buxton, 32, of Red Deer were arrested on Oct. 23 by police following up on a drug investigation at a house in the Inglewood subdivision.

Kreiser and Buxton were both charged with possession of drugs for trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime and possession of a weapon for a dangerous use. Buxton was also charged with simple possession of illegal drugs.

Red Deer City RCMP allege seizing saleable quantities of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, oxycontin and diazipam as well as a baseball bat and bear spray.

Police allege that Kreiser was driving the pickup truck when they pulled it over.

In Red Deer provincial court on Thursday, defence counsel Will Willms entered pleas of not guilty for Kreiser, who was not present in the courtroom. Willms asked that she be tried by Court of Queen’s Bench judge alone with a preliminary hearing beforehand.

Preliminary hearings are normally requested to determine if the Crown has enough evidence to proceed to to trial.

Buxton entered his plea earlier on and is to be arraigned in Court of Queen’s Bench on April 8.
