A checkstop resulted in Brett M. Ferris getting a six-month suspended sentence and conditional discharge, as well as a $360 fine for having open liquor in a vehicle plus a surcharge.
On April 14, police stopped Ferris at a checkstop and noticed an open beer in the front console. A further search found brass knuckles in his back pocket, and 2.7 grams of cocaine, resulting in a possession of a prohibited weapon charge and possession of cocaine charge.
A joint submission between the Crown and defence saw the 35-year-old from Regina get the probation and conditional discharge, with defence attorney Linh Pham thanking the Crown prosecutor “for exercising restraint.”
The probation order included standard conditions, including no alcohol, cannabis or non-prescription drugs, as well as no firearms.
