After spending the better part of the year evading custody, a Red Deer woman is heading to trial on drug trafficking and weapons charges.
Lana Holt, 34, has had a warrant out for her arrest since Jan. 17. She was apprehended in late October and is in the Calgary Remand Centre.
She originally faced three charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of a prohibited weapon and possession of a controlled substance.
She now also has three failing to appear charges. The drug and weapons charges stem from Dec. 3, 2012, after Red Deer RCMP executed a search warrant on a city residence.
Police said they found cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, marijuana and oxycontin, as well as drug trafficking paraphernalia, a handgun and a stun gun.
In Red Deer provincial court Thursday, Holt pleaded not guilty to the initial charges and elected to go to trial before a provincial court judge.
Her trial is set for Sept. 5, 2014, but she will be back in Red Deer provincial court on Jan. 23, 2014, to confirm the dates.
