A lawyer from Calgary will represent a young man facing dozens of criminal charges in Red Deer provincial court.

Defence counsel Allan Fay made his first court appearance on Wednesday with Garnet Colby Mcinnes, 22. Currently in custody at Red Deer Remand Centre, Mcinnes was arrested late in March by police investigating a series of incidents, including an alleged kidnapping, armed robbery and standoff with police the north side of Red Deer on May 14.

Mcinnes faces more than 40 charges, including a variety of weapons offences and multiple counts of kidnapping, forcible confinement, robbery, extortion, uttering threats and assaulting police officers.

Fay asked for a month to receive and review the Crown prosecutor’s files describing the case against his client.

He and Mcinnes are due back in court on July 26 to enter a plea and address bail.
