A man facing nearly 40 drug and weapons charges was denied bail in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.
Ahmed Nur, 28, has been in custody since July 12 when Red Deer RCMP raided a Red Deer residence and a storage unit in Edmonton.
Police seized more than $60,000 worth of drugs, $65,000 in cash and eight firearms.
Co-accused Raed Abdulla, 29, was released in August on a $25,000 cash deposit.
Judge David Plosz didn’t agree to release Nur and he will remain in custody.
In the same court appearance, the Crown prosecutor combined the 38 charges police laid to avoid two separate trials.
Both men, who are originally from Toronto, return to court on Nov. 24.
They face charges of trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, possession of the proceeds of crime and instructing an offence for a criminal organization.
They also face more than 30 weapons-related charges including multiple counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, tampering with a serial number, unsafe storage of a firearm, and possession of a prohibited loaded weapon.
Two youths were also charged with a number of drug-related and possession of property obtained by crime offences.
They are 16 and 17 and can’t be identified under terms of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
