All charges have now been dealt with against three men charged in a drug raid one year ago.

Chase Calihoo, 24, Benjamin Bjarnason, 27, and Devon Watson, 28, were arrested in on Dec. 9, 2012, on weapons and drug charges.

Charges against Calihoo were withdrawn two days later.

Bjarnason and Watson were both scheduled to stand trial on Monday in Red Deer provincial court.

However, the trial did not proceed because both men had pleaded guilty earlier on to some of the charges against them. Additional charges were withdrawn.

Bjarnason was sentenced on Aug. 28 to nine months in jail with a lifetime firearms prohibition on charges of possessing a prohibited firearm.

Watson was sentenced on Oct. 3 to one day in jail on two counts of carrying a concealed weapon.
