Handgun suspect’s trial delayed

The trial has been delayed for a Red Deer man alleged to have been found packing a loaded handgun.

The trial has been delayed for a Red Deer man alleged to have been found packing a loaded handgun.

Rickey Severin, 30, was arrested on Jan. 2, 2012, by a Red Deer City RCMP officer making a traffic stop.

Police alleged that a search of the vehicle uncovered a .45 calibre semi-automatic pistol with ammunition in its clip and with its serial number filed off.

Severin was arrested and charged with a number of firearms offences, including unsafe transport of a firearm, unauthorized transport of a firearm, possession of a firearm with the serial number removed and obstruction of a police officer.

In court on Friday, defence counsel Jake Chadi asked for a change of election, stating that a portion of the disclosure was received late and could affect the outcome of a trial.

A preliminary hearing was held in place of a trial on Friday, with the result that Severin was committed to stand trial at a later date.

He is to return to court for arraignment on Dec. 3, when a new trial date will be set.
