Bacon brother's appeal will be heard in Supreme Court - CTV News

00:09 |

CTV British Columbia - Bacon brother's appeal will be heard in Supreme Court - CTV News: "Supreme Court of Canada will hear the case of an accused British Columbia gangster who says his charter rights were violated by police who found drugs and weapons in his car and home.
Jonathan Bacon and his associates Godwin Cheng and Rayleene Burton were arrested in August 2005 after a police surveillance team said they saw them transferring packages between vehicles.
Subsequent searches found a cache of automatic weapons, silencers, a bulletproof vest and a police uniform, as well as marijuana, ecstasy, cocaine and more than $90,000 in cash.
The trio was charged with 15 counts of drugs and weapons offences.
They challenged the charges in court, arguing that Abbotsford police did not have sufficient cause to search them and, therefore, violated their charter rights. A provincial court judge agreed and in 2008 the charges were dismissed.
Court was told that the day before the arrests were made, a justice of the peace denied a search warrant, finding that there were not reasonable grounds.
The following day police searched their vehicles and made the arrests, saying officers had witnessed a suspected drug transaction. Abbotsford police then applied for a new search warrant, which was granted."
