The case has been dismissed against a man who had been accused of stealing tens of thousands from an at-risk adult. That's according to public records.

Police said in 2014, when they arrested Howard Lawson, 53, used "deceptive practices" to take more than $130,000 from a 57-year-old woman over a period of several months.

Court records show the case was dismissed in April of 2015 and the case was closed.
