A suspended Red Deer lawyer is going to trial in September on charges related to an RCMP counterfeiting bust.

Bradley James Mulder, 44, was charged in February after RCMP searched a residence in Sylvan Lake’s Ryders Ridge neighbourhood.

Police seized numerous printers, counterfeit Canadian and U.S. currency as well as other counterfeiting materials.

Mulder was charged with possessing counterfeit currency and possession of a restricted weapon.

He was suspended last October by the Law Society of Alberta.

Mulder’s trial will take place in Red Deer provincial court on Sept. 18.

Nicole Armstrong, 32, of Sylvan Lake was arrested at the same time and is facing 15 charges related to the possession and production of counterfeit currency, identity theft, possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.

Armstrong is due to appear in Red Deer court on Friday. She also has an April 13 court date in Stettler in connection with an alleged Jan. 11 incident involving counterfeit money.
