An Alberta man will appear in North Battleford Provincial Court after charges were laid following a lengthy investigation which began in the spring of 2016.

The man, 27-year-old Avery Charles Cutarm of the Ermineskin Cree Nation has been charged with robbery, forcible confinement, theft of a motor vehicle, wearing a disguise to commit and offense and break and enter.

The charges stem from an April 19, 2016 incident when RCMP were called to a business on Main St. in Landis after receiving a report of a female who had been the victim of a robbery.

A large amount of liquor, a hunting rifle and a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500 were stolen during the robbery. The victim did not receive any physical injuries.

Cutarm will make his first court appearance on March 13 at 9:30 a.m.

The allegations have not been proven in court.
