A suspect charged in relation to a drug bust in Port Hawkesbury has changed his plea to guilty.
Dexter Brett Sutherland, 27, of Port Hawkesbury originally faced four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and two breaches.
RCMP say they stopped two vehicles for a traffic infraction on Embree Island Rd. in Jan. 2017.
They say officers seized cocaine, oxycodone and marijuana.
Sutherland was expected to stand trial on the drug charges by judge alone in Nova Scotia Supreme Court in Port Hawkesbury Thursday; instead, he pleaded guilty to a single count of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and three counts of possession.
Sentencing was set for Oct. 11.
He’s scheduled for election-and-plea on his breaches in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court May 28; that hearing was adjourned in September.
