A man pleaded guilty to six counts of drug trafficking charges from 2018 and 2019.

A man will be sentenced for drug trafficking after he sold drugs to an undercover police officer in Richmond.

Manoj Renato Singh, 33, pleaded guilty at Richmond Provincial Court on Feb. 28 to unlawfully trafficking fentanyl and cocaine between October 2018 and January 2019.

He also pleaded guilty to unlawfully possessing cocaine, methamphetamine, fentanyl, methylphenidate pills (also known as Ritalin), MDMA, oxycodone pills and carfentanil for the purposes of trafficking.

Singh originally faced 26 charges but the prosecution condensed them into six charges on Wednesday morning. 

Following his guilty pleas, the parties made a joint request for a pre-sentence report, which will include a psychological assessment.

The report is due on May 28, after which a date will be set for Singh's sentencing hearing.
