    Attorney General Roy A. Cooper, III, by Assistant Attorney General Martin T. McCracken, for the State.

    HUNTER, Judge.

    Antwon Wesley Peterson (“defendant”) was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon, felonious possession of stolen property, and felony speeding to elude arrest. He pled guilty to felony possession of a firearm by a felon and felony speeding to elude arrest in exchange for dismissal of the charge of felonious possession of stolen property. He stood trial on the fourth charge, robbery with a dangerous weapon. A jury found him guilty of the offense. The court consolidated the convictions for judgment and sentenced defendant within the presumptive range to a minimum term of 100 months and a maximum term of 129 months. Having reviewed defendant's appeal, we find no error.    Defendant's counsel has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738, 18 L. Ed. 2d 493 (1967), and State v. Kinch, 314 N.C. 99, 331 S.E.2d 665 (1985). He requests this Court to review the record for possible prejudicial error overlooked by counsel. Counsel has attached to the brief a letter he wrote advising defendant in accordance with these decisions. To assist defendant with preparation of his own written arguments, counsel provided defendant with copies of the transcript, record on appeal and brief filed on defendant's behalf by counsel. Defendant has not filed his own written arguments.
    We have reviewed the record on appeal and briefs. We are unable to find any possible prejudicial error.
    No error.
    Judges BRYANT and ELMORE concur.
    Report per Rule 30(e).
