Deputies seek armed teen who held up boy's lemonade stand

Deputies seek armed teen who held up boy's lemonade stand

Investigators said the teen, who wore a camouflage hat and black shirt, stuck a handgun in the boy's stomach demanding money then ran away. For many kids, lemonade stands also serve as their first foray into entrepreneurship, learning lessons about profit, operating costs, the value of hard work, as well as meeting new people.

The Union County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that the stickup happened near a traffic roundabout in Monroe, about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of Charlotte. "That one takes it to a new level".

Neighbour Kelly Smith said the robbery was "heart-wrenching", adding: "That little boy will never be the same".

When officers searched for the suspect, officials located a trail in the woods and found a camouflage hat, a black-colored BB handgun, and the stolen metal money tin.

But if some may think that the robbery was a discouragement cruel enough to keep Mark off the streets, neighbors have said otherwise. "Everybody talks about how he brings smiles to everybody".

"He was definitely shocked", Huyck said. "His eyebrows shot up into his forehead, and he was very excited". "It's just great they came out in support of him", said Phillip Smith, the boys father.
