Prosecutor: Decatur armed robbery charge not pursued due to 'insufficient evidence'

  • 0

DECATUR — The Macon County State's Attorney's Office has declined to file formal charges in a March armed robbery, saying there was "insufficient evidence" to try the case. 

Johnathan M. Radley, 21, faced a preliminary charge of armed robbery with a firearm, a Class X felony. Preliminary charges are subject to review by the state's attorney's office, which makes final charging decisions.

"Should further information develop supporting the allegations, then charges can be filed at a later date," State's Attorney Jay Scott said. 

Radley was arrested March 28 on a warrant after a 17-year-old juvenile told police Radley had held a victim at gunpoint and demanded he turn over his cash and cellphone on March 6, Sgt. Chris Copeland previously said.

Radley could not immediately be reached for comment.
