Two people arrested after a drug bust in Port Hawkesbury are expected to learn the outcome of their preliminary inquiry in the new year.
RCMP say officers searched a home in Cameron Court in the town in Aug. 2017.
They say they seized cocaine, hydromorphone, dexamphetamine and other drug paraphernalia.
Police charged Joseph Allison Sponagle, 26, of Havre Boucher and Destiny Hope Matthews, 24, of Inverness Co. with possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine, hydromorphone and dexamphetamine.
Sponagle and Matthews, who had an election-and-plea hearing in April, elected to be tried by judge alone in Nova Scotia Supreme Court; their preliminary inquiry, which determines if there’s enough evidence to send a case to trial, opened in July.
It resumed, and wrapped up, in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court Tuesday; the judge in the case reserved their decision until Jan. 2.
