Three men who were on Halifax's High Risk Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) list and arrested Wednesday are appearing in Provincial Court this morning to face a total of 31 charges.
Andrew Jason Hudder and Brandon Joseph Mombourquette were taken into custody at about 10:40 p.m. on Wednesday, near Agricola and Bilby streets.
The third man arrested Wednesday is 31-year-old Clinton James Christie. Like the others, Christie was wanted on an outstanding warrant.
Christie answered to four charges in court on Friday including various drug offences.
Hudder, 27, faces 21 charges, in all. He's charged with assault with a weapon and dangerous driving, among other things. Those charges are in addition to attempted murder charges he faces in connection with a drive by shooting that happened in north-end Halifax last November. He was previously charged with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a weapon and nine weapons related offences.
Mombourquette, 28, is facing several drug offences on top of his previous weapons charges after a 2009 traffic stop where police found a loaded handgun. He failed to attend a court date in March of this year.
Both Hudder and Mombourquette were on the run from police for several months. Both are suspects in more recent crimes, including a string of bank machine robberies in the Moncton area during the late summer and early fall.
