Thirty charges, including stolen property, drugs and firearms offences, were laid against a Red Deer man spotted by police in the alley behind a north end strip mall before Christmas.

Red Deer RCMP arrested the 35-year-old just after 4 a.m. when police found him in a stolen vehicle with an “extensive amount” of stolen property, drugs and several firearms, according to a news release.

He was arrested behind the Village Mall on Dec. 20 and has been in custody since.

Police said when he was arrested, they seized small amounts of drugs, including cocaine and marijuana, as well as two sawed-off shotguns, one of which was loaded, in the vehicle.

When the man was arrested, they discovered a third firearm and seized it as well.

Jeremy Keddy has been charged with eight counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000; three counts each of careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of an unauthorized firearm while known possession is unauthorized, possession of firearm in a motor vehicle; two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession of a loaded firearm; and one count each of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of break-in instruments and possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Keddy will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Jan 14.
