Proceedings have been adjourned until Friday against a Red Deer man charged with multiple offences.

Proceedings have been adjourned until Friday against a Red Deer man charged with multiple offences.

Mark Belisle made his second court appearance on Wednesday in relation to charges of dangerous driving, flight from police and possession of stolen property, including a one-ton pickup truck, a utility trailer, an all-terrain vehicle and an Alberta licence plate.

Charges arise from an arrest made at about 7 a.m. on Sept. 19 following a vehicle pursuit. Police alleged in a statement issued later that day that members followed a truck pulling the loaded trailer. The statement further alleges that an arrest was made when the man attempted to flee on the quad that had been mounted on the trailer.

Represented by duty counsel Murray Shack and appearing by closed-circuit TV from the Red Deer Remand Centre, Belisle asked that he be given until Friday morning to speak with Red Deer lawyer Dan Wilson, who is representing him on unrelated matters. Belisle remains in custody.
