Two of the three people charged in relation to a drug bust in Inverness Co. are scheduled to return to court in September.
RCMP say members of the Inverness/Richmond Street Crime Enforcement Unit searched a home in Sugar Camp in April.
They say officers seized cocaine, marijuana, hashish, drug paraphernalia and cash.
Police say they arrested three men from Sugar Camp.
Joshua Nicholson, 31, Brendan MacAskill, 26, and Steven MacEachern, 24, all face four counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and a single count of possession of equipment to assist in the trafficking of cocaine.
MacAskill and MacEachern were expected for election-and-plea in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court Monday; instead, the hearing was adjourned until Sept. 10.
It was also adjourned in June and July.
Nicholson, who has already elected a trial by judge and jury in Nova Scotia Supreme Court and is scheduled for a preliminary inquiry Dec. 3, has had numerous run-ins with the law in the past; he pleaded guilty to assault, uttering threats and a drug count, and was sentenced to 18 months’ probation, 12 hours community service and a fine in relation to a Dec. 2016 incident.
He was sentenced to 90 days in jail and six months’ probation after he pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon following a bear spray incident in Port Hawkesbury in 2012.
