Jason Yeo

The Crown is expected to call its final witness Wednesday in the trial of a Charlottetown man charged with trafficking in cocaine.

Jason Norman Yeo is alleged to have been a party to the sale of cocaine to an undercover police officer in May of 2012.

The Crown contends that Yeo aided and abetted Chase James Roper in the sale of that cocaine.

The Crown will close its case against Yeo by calling the undercover operative who made the drug purchase leading to the charges against Yeo and Roper. Roper was to have testified Tuesday but after a series of consultations between the various lawyers involved the decision was made not to call him.

Roper has already pleaded guilty to trafficking in cocaine in connection with this incident and been sentenced to a term of imprisonment in a federal correctional centre.

The case resumes before Supreme Court Justice Wayne Cheverie Wednesday morning.
