An Edmonton man accused of peddling pot and steroids in Red Deer has chosen to be tried by judge alone in the Court of Queen’s Bench.

Travis Stewart, 24, was not in court for arraignments on Monday, during which the dates and nature of his trial were discussed before Justice Monica Bast in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench.

Stewart was arrested on the evening of April 29, 2011, by a Red Deer RCMP officer who observed what he believed to be a drug deal taking place inside a vehicle in the downtown area.

Investigators allege that open liquor was found inside the vehicle, along with an undisclosed quantity of marijuana and anabolic steroids.

Stewart was charged with possession of marijuana for trafficking, production of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance.

Charges were not laid against the other man alleged to have been in the vehicle with him.

Stewart’s trial has been set for two days, starting on Feb. 18, 2014.
