Man pleads guilty to selling pot and crack to undercover officer


A man known by police for affiliations with a Red Deer street gang has pleaded guilty to selling pot and crack to an undercover officer.

Przemyslaw Trawinski, 28, was arrested and charged which multiple counts of trafficking of controlled substances, possession for the purposes of trafficking and possession of the proceeds of crime after selling small quantities of crack cocaine and marijuana to an undercover police officer on two different occasions last fall.

Crown prosecutor Dave Inglis, in reading details of the charges, said the undercover officer had made arrangements via cellphone to meet with and buy drugs from a man known as Seattle, a member of the White Horse Posse street gang, and later identified as Trawinski.

The officer purchased small quantities of crack and marijuana in two separate buys, leading to Trawinski’s arrest.

Trawinski, who was not in custody, is to return for sentencing on May 30.
