Trial dates will be set soon for a Sylvan Lake woman arrested a year earlier on drug trafficking and weapons charges.

On Oct. 23, 2012, Red Deer City RCMP and members of the Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Unit arrested two people who had been under investigation, including surveillance of a house in the Inglewood subdivision.

In a statement issued two days later, Red Deer RCMP said Summer Brook Kreiser, 30, and city resident Brian Buxton, 32, were taken down in a traffic stop on charges including possession of drugs for trafficking, possession of weapons for a dangerous purpose and possession of goods obtained through crime.

Kreiser was ordered to stand trial on Friday, represented by defence counsel Will Willms of Red Deer. She pleaded not guilty earlier and asked to be tried by judge alone in Court of Queen’s Bench.

Her trial dates will be set at the next available arraignment day.

Buxton, who was charged separately, is scheduled for a three-day trial by judge alone in Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench, starting on Dec. 17, and is represented by Calgary defence counsel Hirsh Wolch.
