A Stettler man busted for drugs during a traffic stop near Three Hills has been given 12 months to prove that he can stay out of trouble.

Jason George Snodgrass, 38, pleaded guilty in Drumheller provincial court in December to drug-related charges that were laid on Feb. 16, 2012, by Three Hills RCMP.

Police alleged at the time that they had seized an undisclosed quantity of cash and 2.4 kg of marijuana.

Sentencing was postponed until last Tuesday to allow preparation of a presentence report.

Snodgrass was given a conditional sentence with 12 months of probation, during which he must follow strict conditions to avoid further prosecution.

He has also been prohibited from owning firearms for a period of 10 years.
