A suspect arrested in relation to a drug bust in Inverness Co. is scheduled to return to court in March.
Police say they stopped a vehicle on Rte. 19 in July.
They say they charged the driver with trafficking hydromorphone and possession of hydromorphone for the purpose of trafficking.
Shea Slaunwhite, 26, who made his first appearance in the case in September, has already elected a Nova Scotia Supreme Court trial by judge-and-jury; he started his preliminary inquiry in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court Tuesday.
The hearing is expected to resume March 6.
