The defense counsel for a man accused of drug trafficking and fleeing from police is preparing to enter plea negotiations with the Crown.
Appearing in court on Friday morning after a show-cause hearing on Jan. 2, the accused was remanded back into custody as the court adjourned.
The accused is scheduled to appear again in Prince Albert Provincial Court on Monday, Jan. 27 at 10 a.m.
The Saskatchewan Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) originally arrested the accused along with a female companion on Dec. 23 following a car chase and subsequent pursuit on foot.
Police at the time reported the seizure of 505 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 279 grams of soft cocaine and 83 grams of crack cocaine.
Ryan Connell, 32, has been charged with possession of crystal methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight -- also known as failing to stop for police -- and breach of probation.
Meanwhile, Taylor Vandresar, 20, has been charged with possession of crystal methamphetamine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking.
She was released on a recognizance on Dec. 31 and is set to appear in provincial court on Monday at 9:30 a.m.
