Central Alberta police have found and arrested a man who was wanted in connection to a mid-May standoff in Red Deer.

On Tuesday, Red Deer RCMP said Garnet Colby McInnes, 22, had been arrested and was facing 18 charges stemming from an hours-long standoff with police on May 14.

McInnes was arrested May 27 after RCMP received a tip that he was in Red Deer, and headed to Lacombe.

He is facing a variety of charges ranging from breach of probation, to robbery and extortion with a firearm, kidnapping while using a firearm and uttering threats.

The charges stem from a mid-May standoff that saw police descend on a home in the area of Halman Crescent in Red Deer.

Police said the incident began at about 2 a.m. on May 14, with reports of an armed robbery outside of an apartment building on Parke Avenue – police then followed the alleged suspects to the home on Halman Crescent.

A number of residents living near the home were evacuated while police tried to contact the people inside the home.

Hours later, the situation ended, and a number of people came out of the home unhurt.

The next day, police charged David James Kertesz, 27, of no fixed address, in connection with the standoff – he is also facing a number of kidnapping, robberies, extortion and firearms related charges.

A week after Kertesz was arrested, police issued arrest warrants for McInnes on the 18 charges.
