Facing more than 20 charges, including two counts of firearms trafficking, a Red Deer man will have his bail hearing this afternoon.
Brandon Kevin Wattie, 27, faces multiple counts stemming from several incidents over the last four years.
Wattie and his attorney Michael Scrase of Red Deer appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday before Judge B.R. Fraser, who set Wattie’s show/cause hearing for today.
Wattie asked that it be an in-person court appearance.
Charges stemming from incidents in 2009 include two counts of trafficking weapons and firearms, two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, two counts of possession of a firearm, a Ruger 10/22, knowing it was obtained by the commission of an offence and one count each of possession of stolen property from the proceeds of a crime and break and enter with intent.

Charges from 2012 include two counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, two counts of failure to stop and evading a peace officer and one count of operating a motor vehicle without a licence or insurance.
His most recent charges, from 2013, include careless use and storage of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon in a public place, uttering threats and mischief to property under $5,000.
He was arrested by Red Deer RCMP on the most recent charges.
