Stettler woman faces drug trafficking charges

Trial set in Red Deer Court of Queens Bench

A Stettler woman made her first court appearance on drug trafficking charges.

Michelle C. Robinson appeared in Stettler provincial court Dec. 13 charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Red Deer lawyer Jason Snider told the court Robinson elects to be tried in Court of Queens Bench by judge alone. He said there are three witnesses for the March 12 trial starting at 11 a.m. in Red Deer Court of Queens Bench. Crown is proceeding by indictable offence, which is the more serious than summary conviction.

Stettler RCMP issued a press release Nov. 1 saying they executed a search warrant on Oct. 30 around 10 a.m. and arrested two Stettler residents.

They said they arrested Stephen Bauer and someone they referred to as an “unnamed 43-year-old Stettler woman.”

The Dec. 13 court docket reveals the same Stettler RCMP file number for Robinson and as it does for Stephen Bauer, 37.
