A man arrested following a traffic stop in Inverness Co. is scheduled to return to court Thursday.
John Clayton “Clay” MacDonald, 77, faces a pair of charges- possession and possession for the purpose of trafficking oxycodone.
MacDonald, who elected a Nova Scotia Supreme Court judge-and-jury trial during an election-and-plea hearing in January, is expected for a preliminary inquiry in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court; the hearing will determine if there’s enough evidence to send the case to trial.
Police say they arrested a passenger when they stopped a car on Rte. 19 in Judique North and seized oxycodone in Aug. 2017.
They say they didn’t charge the driver.
