A robbery charge amended to grand larceny in October will not be prosecuted.

Fabian Garcia, 22, of Dublin was charged with robbery in connection with an incident that occurred in the town of Pulaski June 25, 2012. The charge was amended to grand larceny in October and Thursday, the prosecution asked that it be nolle prosequi (not prosecuted with the option to re-file).

Pulaski Police Officer Megan Jennings said in 2012 that a male was walking toward his Meadowview Apartment building in the early morning hours when another man approached him. She said the assailant indicated he had a gun and was attempting to conceal his identity.

The victim told police he complied with demands he turn over his wallet and a jacket he was wearing.

Police later arrested Garcia for the incident.
