Forslund was scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court Friday.

Dalton Jeffries, 18, of Red Deer, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000, possession of a dangerous weapon and two counts of failing to comply with court orders.

Jeffries is due in Red Deer provincial court March 1.

The third suspect is under the age of 18 and his name cannot be released under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. No information was provided on charges.
