A preliminary hearing for a man arrested in a drug raid was put on hold when he failed to come to court.

David Twerdochlib, 39, of Red Deer, was scheduled for a preliminary inquiry on Monday in Red Deer provincial court on 30 drug, weapon and stolen property-related charges.

A warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to attend court.

He was arrested in December 2014 at a trailer on Burnt Lake Trail when the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team, Blackfalds RCMP and Red Deer RCMP executed a search warrant. Police said they seized five firearms, including a Walther semi-automatic handgun, an Echasa semi-automatic handgun, a Ruger .22-calibre rifle, a pistol grip Ithaca shotgun and a Rossi .44-calibre handgun.

Twerdochlib faces several charges related to the firearms and possession of controlled substances, including crack cocaine and hydromorphone pills, and a variety stolen items.
