A store owner who has dragged a nine-year alleged thief through his IGA supermarket and locked him in a storage room has dropped his indictment.
Farivar Ronaghi was in his Kelmscott store in Western Australia when he grabbed the child and locked it in a storage room last December.
He was accused of deprivation of liberty and attack on the incident.

The images showed that Mr. Ronaghi dragged the child by the collar and pushed him into the room before he locked the door.
Moments later, a group of children entered the store and caused damage by throwing stones and pushing items off the shelf.
Some children were accused of stealing, Nine news reported.
After he was released from court, Mr. Ronaghi said, "I have to thank the people who have supported me right now, it was very stressful for me."
