A judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of a man facing more than 30 charges stemming from multiple incidents, including an attempt to break out of the Red Deer Remand Centre two weeks after he was granted bail.

Jeremy Keddy, 35, did not appear in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday as he was scheduled. Crown prosecutor Carolyn Ayre sought a warrant and Judge Jim Hunter granted the request.

Keddy was granted his release on March 25 in the form of a $5,000 surety. The person who provided the surety came forward on April 1 and asked to be removed as surety in Red Deer provincial court, a request that was granted.

Keddy was arrested on Dec. 20 behind the Village Mall, at 6320 50th Ave. in Red Deer. RCMP said they found several firearms in his possession, including a handgun and two sawed-off shotguns.

He was held in custody at the Red Deer Remand Centre. During his stay, it is alleged that he was found attempting to dig a hole into a wall at the centre.

Keddy faces numerous firearm, drug and stolen property related charges.
