Charges against a man accused of robbing a Red Deer dollar store have been dismissed.

Louis McLeod, 35, of Red Deer had his single charge of armed robbery dropped in Red Deer provincial court on Monday.

The Crown called no evidence against McLeod and judge John Holmes dismissed the charge.

McLeod was not present, but his attorney Paul Morigeau was and had kept McLeod nearby, but not in the courtroom.

McLeod had been charged with robbing the now-closed Looney Lane on Little Gaetz Ave. on March 18, 2011.
