A Red Deer man faces a laundry list of charges following his arrest for allegedly possessing stolen ID, forged government cheques and counterfeiting gear.

On the evening of July 21, Mounties went into a restaurant in south Red Deer following a report of a suspicious man.

They located the man, who was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants out of Innisfail for charges including fraud, assault, uttering threats, failing to comply with court-ordered conditions and failing to appear in court.

During the arrest, RCMP found a knife, a loaded pellet gun and numerous stolen identity documents. RCMP seized documents involving close to 13 victims, incuding a letter of approval for a credit card in the name of one of the victims, plus 15 fake US $50 bills.

Brenden Darcy Bowe, 26, faces 17 counts and is scheduled to appear in court on August 2.
