Lance James Peters, 24, will appear in Red Deer provincial court on Oct. 24.

Some of the charges he faces include nine charges of break and enter and committing an indictable offence; assault with a weapon; six thefts of vehicle; illegal possession of a firearm in a vehicle; two counts of flight from police; four counts of dangerous driving; two robbery charges; three counts of possession of a controlled substance; obstructing a police officer; and five counts of failing to comply with the conditions of a recognizance.

Following a hearing before a justice of the peace in Edmonton on Thursday, Peters will remain in custody.
