Bail has been denied for a Red Deer man charged with numerous weapon and drug-related offences in September.

A bail hearing was held for Saleem Mike El-Majzoub, 27, in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday.

He was charged with a number of charges, including two counts of possession of a dangerous weapon, three counts of possession of a prohibited weapon, dangerous driving and possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The charges stem from an incident after Red Deer city RCMP followed up a complaint of a dangerous driver on Sept. 13.

Police were unable to track down the vehicle, but received a tip that the suspect was staying in a hotel at Sylvan Lake.

He was arrested there and brought back to Red Deer on charges.

On Thursday, he pleaded not guilty to charges and elected Queen’s Bench judge and jury for trial.

Preliminary hearing dates will be set on Dec. 27.
