Proceedings against two men accused in connection with a marijuana and magic mushrooms operation have been adjourned until later this month.

Shawn Bodnaruk of Kindersley, Sask., and Stephan Dylan Senetza of Red Deer were charged with a variety of drug charges following a traffic stop and a subsequent residential search in Red Deer in February.

Red Deer City RCMP allege that they pulled a vehicle over in a traffic stop on Feb. 25 and found about four kg of pscilocybin or magic mushrooms inside. They further allege that their investigation led them to an apartment in Highland Green where they found a similar quantity of marijuana on Feb. 27.

Proceedings against both men were brought before Judge Jim Mitchell in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

Bodnaruk, 24, is charged with possession of a controlled substance for trafficking while Senetza, 26, is charged with trafficking drugs and possession for trafficking.

Represented by duty counsel, Bodnaruk reserved plea and is to return to court on May 31.

Senetza, represented by Red Deer lawyer Brad Mulder, returns to enter his plea on May 24.
