A Red Deer man now faces 46 charges relating to the possession and use of stolen identities, including credit cards, fuel cards, safety tickets, drivers’ licences and un-cashed cheques.

Represented by defence counsel Patty MacNaughton, Robin James Gilroy, 36, appeared by closed-circuit TV from the Edmonton Remand Centre on Tuesday to hear the charges against him, including multiple counts of possessing stolen identity cards and possessing property obtained in the commission of a serious criminal offence.

In a statement issued on March 5, Red Deer City RCMP said Gilroy had been arrested late in January on an unrelated issue.

Police allege that a number of stolen items, including ID cards and cheques, were discovered in their investigation.

Police allege that Gilroy used an imitation firearm to rob a man in Penhold on Jan. 27 and they further allege that he passed a number of forged cheques earlier that month.

Gilroy remains in custody pending his next court appearance.

MacNaughton asked that her client’s plea be reserved to April 1. He is scheduled for surgery next week and she wants time to review the files an d discuss the charges with the Crown prosecutor’s office.
