"There would very likely be some public concerns," says one RCMP official out any potential release.

He was released from custody after posting bail on March 13.

"The RCMP remains committed to the enforcement efforts directed at reducing gun violence in our communities," said Cpl. Madonna Saunderson, at the time of his arrest.

Calliou faces 19 charges including discharge firearm with intent, aggravated assault, kidnapping, forcible confinement, armed robbery, and pointing a firearm, among others.

He has several priors, having been found guilty of breaking and entering, mischief $5,000 or under, and wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer in October 2017.

He was found guilty of several breaches of court orders, fleeing from police, and possession of stolen property over $5,000 in September 2019.

Calliou is scheduled to appear in Dawson Creek court on July 8.
