DOVER, Del. (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped all charges against a chemist who was arrested in an evidence tampering and theft investigation at Delaware’s drug lab.

The News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/1Fbmh3n ) that court records show a state prosecutor dropped the remaining charges against Farnam Daneshgar - marijuana and paraphernalia possession - earlier this month.

Just before trial in February, dropped charges alleging Daneshgar falsified business records at the drug lab. The trial ended in a hung jury.

State police closed down the controlled substances lab, which is part of the medical examiner’s office, during the investigation.

A trial has been postponed for a second worker, James Woodson, on charges of trafficking cocaine, tampering with physical evidence and theft of controlled dangerous substances.
