Another adjournment for former Kamloops mountie accused of trafficking

October 06, 2016 - 9:46 AM

KAMLOOPS - There has been another adjournment in court for a former Kamloops RCMP officer charged with trafficking cocaine while on the job.

Randi Love has yet to appear in provincial court for an arraignment hearing where the accused typically enters a plea.

Love's lawyer Brad Smith today, Oct. 6, asked the Justice of the Peace to adjourn the matter for one week at the request of the Crown prosecutor in the case.

The Justice expressed frustration with the adjournment, saying the case was first brought before the courts in June and a previous arraignment hearing in August was adjourned.

The Justice said she would allow one more adjournment to Thursday, Oct. 13.

Love is charged with three counts of trafficking a controlled substance.

The RCMP first became aware of the allegations on July 16, 2015. An investigation was launched and Love was suspended from duty on Aug. 7 of that year.

Love submitted her discharge papers last October and is no longer a member of the police force.
