A Red Deer County man arrested on drug and weapons charges more than a year ago will wait almost a year to go to trial.
Jason Sagal, 39, was arrested in October 2011 by police investigating a West Park resident’s complaint that her boyfriend assaulted her. The woman told police on Sunday, Oct. 23, that she feared for her safety because he had access to firearms.
Sagal was arrested two days later after being pulled over while driving inside city limits. A search was conducted at his home in a rural area outside of the city. Police allege that a number of weapons were seized, including rifles, pellet guns, crossbows, a hunting bow and some knives, as well as ammunition and 7.65 kg of marijuana.
Released earlier on $15,000 cash bail, Sagal is to stand trial on Sept. 13, 2013.
