SALISBURY — Court officials have dismissed charges against two men accused of robbing a former friend at gunpoint.
Behtan Hashemzadeh, 23, was charged by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office in April with robbery with a dangerous weapon. Court records show those charges have been dismissed.
Authorities were told by Jared Charbonneau that Hashemzadeh asked to borrow $50. When Charbonneau showed up, a former co-worker, Michael Fulcher, 30, was a passenger in Hashemzadeh’s vehicle.
Fulcher was charged with felony aiding and abetting an armed robbery. Those charges also have been dismissed.
“The state’s motion to continue was denied by the court,” court documents said.
The case was brought before District Court Judge Beth Dixon on July 11.
In two separate incidents, Charbonneau was charged with trafficking opium or heroin, misdemeanor larceny, felony larceny, possession of stolen goods and felony obtaining property by false pretense. Those charges are still pending.
Charbonneau is expected to be in court in September.
