Stacy Ray Laglace, 32, made a brief appearance in Dawson Creek court Jan. 12, and will appear in early February to finally hear a formal reading of his charges.
No plea has been entered so far, and he was appointed Vancouver based lawyer Tony Laagemat as his counsel in August 2020.
Laglace was arrested in Fort St. John in June 2020, during a shoplifting investigation at Walmart.
He faces a long list of 21 charges, including aggravated assault, discharging a firearm with intent, kidnapping, and robbery. Laglace was scheduled for arraignment several times last summer, with the dates being moved by the courts.
He remains in custody.
