More charges have been laid against a Red Deer male involved in a two-week long manhunt and an alleged accomplice has been arrested.

Garnet Colby Mcinnes, 22, of Red Deer surrendered peacefully early Tuesday morning after a four-hour armed standoff with police at a Lacombe residence.

Several people were arrested at the residence, including Samantha Johnstone, 23, of no fixed address.

Johnstone has been charged with four counts of drug-related offenses, including possession or trafficking of cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and cannabis resin.

She made her first court appearance on Wednesday in Red Deer provincial court before Judge Gordon Yake. She reserved her election and the matter was put over to June 6.

Johnstone was previously wanted on charges, along with Mcinnes, related to an alleged carjacking near Blackfalds on May 15.

Mcinnes was already facing charges of extortion, kidnapping, robbery and forcible confinement in relation to a May 14 armed robbery at a Parke Avenue apartment followed by an armed and barricaded standoff in a Highland Green neighbourhood residence.

An additional 11 charges were laid after his arrest on Tuesday.

He is now also charged with using a firearm in a commission of an offence, careless use of a firearm, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, robbery, robbery with a firearm and two counts of assaulting a police officer with a weapon.

Mcinnes’s first court appearance on all these matters is scheduled for Monday in Red Deer provincial court.
