Timothy John Knowles, 33, faces similar charges in addition to four counts of disobeying a court order, identity fraud and nine other charges from Red Deer RCMP for an outstanding warrant.
RCMP also charged Leith Alexandra Curtis, 33, with possession of property obtained by a crime over $5,000, posession of an instrument for use in forging a credit card, as well as four counts of failing to comply with a probation order.
All three men are being held in custody and are scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on June 23.
