Matt Hefer (aka Matt Klaric) was sentenced Friday, June 8 to 18 months in custody for Possession for the purpose of trafficking cocaine.

Justice Jerome Tholl had found him guilty on March 29, and sentencing was passed down June 8.

The charge stems from Klaric's arrest back in 2016.

On March 17, 2016, RCMP officers executed a search warrant at Hefer's home in Moosomin. Several officers from the Moosomin detachment were involved in the drug bust.

Klaric was arrested and taken to the RCMP detachment while officers searched his home. Among other things, the officers found 10.6 grams of powder cocaine and one gram of MDMA (ecstasy).

The cocaine was packaged in 16 small plastic bags, each containing .7 grams of cocaine, found in a safe along with a scale, and stickers indicating weights and prices.

Cell phones were also seized, containing text conversations with references to drug purchases, buffing (cutting cocaine with filler to increase profits), burner phones, pricing per zip (gram) of product, and how to move product without it being detected.
