Yellowknife, N.W. T. - A man charged with two counts of possession for the purposes of trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act was up for a bail review in Supreme Court April 23rd.
Robert Livingstone was charged in the summer of 2010 after police say they seized three kilograms of marijuana and 268 grams of cocaine from a Ford F-150 he and another man were driving from British Columbia to Yellowknife.
He is currently in custody awaiting his trial and was eligible for a bail review yesterday under a section of the criminal code that deals with reviews of detention when trials are delayed.
However, Livingstone waived his right to a hearing.
He is currently scheduled for a trial by judge and jury in October.
The other man in the truck was also facing two charges in relation to the case but was acquitted on both counts earlier this month.
