Trial dates will be set early in December for a man arrested on drugs and weapons charges by police investigating a domestic dispute.

Trial dates will be set early in December for a man arrested on drugs and weapons charges by police investigating a domestic dispute.

Red Deer City RCMP allege that Jason Sagal, now 39, was arrested after a search warrant at a rural home outside of Red Deer uncovered numerous weapons and a stash of marijuana.

Police say they searched the home after getting a call on Sunday, Oct. 23, 2011, from a woman who lives in Red Deer.

The woman reported that she had been threatened and that she feared for her safety because the man she was accusing had access to weapons.

Sagal was arrested in a traffic stop the following Tuesday on charges including assault, uttering threats, possession of marijuana for trafficking, and unauthorized possession of weapons including rifles, pellet guns, crossbows and knives.

Released earlier on $15,000 cash bail, Sagal had elected to be tried by a provincial court judge with a preliminary inquiry set for Thursday afternoon.

In court on Thursday, Sagal waived the preliminary inquiry, which is normally held to determine the strength of the Crown’s case.

A date for his trial is to be set during his arraignment, set for Monday, Dec. 3.
