A Red Deer man is facing a laundry list of charges after a failed home invasion in Wainwright earlier this week.

The 37-year-old is facing more than 25 charges including breaking and entering, pointing a firearm, discharge of a firearm with intent, robbery with a firearm, flight from a peace officer, dangerous operation of motor vehicle and operation while prohibited.

The man allegedly broke into a house shortly after 10 a.m. on Monday and was located by police after a short pursuit less than an hour later. He was known to police prior to the incident.

After an in-custody judicial hearing, is being held until his scheduled court appearance on Sept. 3, 2021, in Wainwright.

“One of Wainwright RCMP’s goals is to ensure public safety. By working together within our community and with our neighbours, we will achieve this goal,” said Acting Detachment Commander Corporal Kirk Smith.

“Seeing how Wainwright RCMP and all the surrounding RCMP detachments supported us to assist in making a safe and successful arrest, solidifies my belief that the Wainwright RCMP and our neighbours are doing their absolute best for the safety of our community.”
