A Red Deer man in custody since July on drug and weapon charges will have a bail review next week.

Ahmed Nur, 28, returns to Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday for the review.

He 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.

Nur appeared briefly on closed circuit television Thursday in provincial court while co-accused Raed Abdulla was represented by an agent for Edmonton lawyer Andrew Fong.

Abdulla, 29, had his charges adjourned to Nov. 24. Nur will also appear on that date whether or not he is granted bail next week.

Abdulla was released earlier on $25,000 cash deposit.

Both accused are jointly charged with 40 drugs and weapon charges.

They face charges of unauthorized possession of a firearm, tampering with a serial number, possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime, trafficking in a controlled substance, instructing an offence for a criminal organization and three counts of corrupting children to commit a crime.
