Two men facing robbery charges in connection with a pair of incidents last month appeared briefly in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.

Police located one suspect in a vehicle a short time later and seized a pellet rifle. A second suspect was arrested soon after at a residence.

Lucas James Werner, 34, and Shayden Alvin Werner, 21, are both charged with robbery, attempted robbery, two counts of using an imitation firearm.

Lucas Werner is also charged with impaired driving, driving with an alcohol level over .08 and two counts of breaching court order conditions.

They return to court on Aug. 25.
