A man charged in connection with an investigation into illegal drugs and steroids in the region has changed his pleas on three charges.

Spencer Gordon Court wasn’t in the court Monday, but his lawyer, William Stephenson, entered guilty pleas on his behalf on the counts of conspiracy to traffic steroids.

The Crown dropped two other conspiracy counts.

Court is due to be sentenced on these matters Sept. 9.

He faces 31 other charges in connection with the investigation and is due to return to court in August for trial in the Court of Queen’s Bench for conspiracy to traffic in a controlled substance.

Court is also scheduled to stand trial on charges in related cases in September, October and November. The four trials involve different co-accused.

The charges against Court arose as a result of Operation Jellybean, a major joint-forces investigation conducted by RCMP J Division’s Fredericton and Saint John drug unit and the Fredericton Police Force.

The operation, which ran for two years, targeted a group alleged to be involved in trafficking cocaine, marijuana, prescription drugs and anabolic steroids in New Brunswick, Ontario and Nova Scotia, but the focus of the investigation was in the Fredericton area.

Police arrested suspects in January 2007. More than 20 people were charged as a result of the investigation.
