A young Red Deer man has been released with additional bail after being arrested on Friday on charges of fraud and forgery.
Chance Aaron Shaw, 22, now faces three sets of charges by police alleging multiple offences, including renting property that he didn’t own, teaching safety courses without having the proper training and certificates, and selling vehicles that don’t exist.
Shaw had been released on $5,000 cash bail plus a surety of $2,500 before his first court appearance in late February on the rental property allegations, returning to court on March 4 for the charges laid in the safety ticket allegations.
Police arrested him again late last week on charges alleging that he had accepted cash payments for nonexistent vehicles between February 2013 and January 2014 and naming two different victims.
Represented by defence counsel Andrew Phyper, Shaw reserved election on all three sets of charges in Red Deer provincial court on Tuesday. He was released from custody on an additional cash bail of $1,500. Shaw is scheduled to return to the court case management office on April 8 to enter his pleas.
