A MAN charged over a robbery where shots were fired at Bonville earlier this year has appeared in court.

Budd Dickson-Briggs, 24, did not apply for bail during a brief appearance in Armidale Local Court after his arrest by Coffs Harbour police in Taylor St, Armidale, last week.

Police allege that Dickson-Briggs was involved in a robbery on a Bonville property on February 28.

It's alleged two men met with Dickson-Briggs, in the company of two other men, to purchase a quad bike and dirt bike.

But the sale went wrong, when one of the buyers was allegedly assaulted and the other was threatened with a firearm.

Police allege the victims were chased by the trio and shots were fired at them.

Dickson-Briggs is facing charges of robbery in company whilst armed with a dangerous weapon.

The matter has been transferred to the Coffs Harbour Local Court on June 12.
