Four men face a combined 62 charges, the bulk being firearm related, after a recent arrest by Red Deer RCMP.

Kolton M. Dalkin, Jeromy M. Arsenault, Johnny Edward Allison and Robert L. Kilpatrick are co-accused on the substantive matter.

The four made an appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday before judge Jim Mitchell.

Kilpatrick alone faces 35 charges including conspiracy to commit an offence, credit card fraud, harassment and eight firearms charges including robbery with a firearm and pointing a firearm.

Dalkin, Arsenault and Allison all face three counts of careless use of a firearm and one count of possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition.

Arsenault faces an additional six charges of possession of weapons contrary to a court order.

The charges were laid after the Red Deer Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team executed a search warrant in Red Deer were numerous guns were seized. The warrant was executed on Jan. 13.

The four are in custody at the Red Deer Remand Centre and appeared by closed circuit television. Defence counsels Maurice Collard and Dan Wilson appeared on the accuseds’ behalf, Collard as Kilpatrick’s counsel and Wilson as agent for Arsenault’s counsel Rick Wyrozub and Dalkin’s counsel Patty MacNaughton. Allison was represented by duty counsel Mark Daoust.

Wilson told Mitchell he was instructed to enter a not guilty plea for Arsenault and set the matter for a provincial court trial. However, because the three other co-accused were not ready to enter a plea Wilson could only put his intentions on the record and follow along with a shorter adjournment so the rest had a chance to talk with duty counsel.

Dalkin and Allison also face additional charges separate from the co-accused matter.

They both face robbery with a firearm, possession of break-in instruments, uttering threats, using a firearm in the commission of an offence, pointing a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm. Those charges stem from a Jan. 11 armed robbery arrest by Rocky Mountain House RCMP.

The four will next appear in Red Deer provincial court on Feb. 3.
