Lemonade stand robber on the run; DNA could help track him

Lemonade stand robber on the run; DNA could help track him”

The Union County Sheriff's Office said Sunday that the stickup happened near a traffic roundabout in Monroe, about 30 miles southeast of Charlotte.

Local media outlets spoke to the child's father, Phillip Smith, who said his son ran the lemonade stand to raise money for a riding lawnmower - to use in his other business.

Almost every weekend the boy has been setting up his lemonade stand along a round-a-bout in the neighborhood so he could buy a new lawnmower for his other weekend business.

Public information officer Tony Underwood tells NPR that the robber got away with $17.

Officials believe the suspect, described as a black male in his teens, made his getaway on a bicycle after the robbery.

His family is not letting this incident ruin his dream.

A young USA boy trying to sell his homemade lemonade has been robbed by a heartless thief armed with a gun.

"Never thought in a million years I'd be racing off to pick him up with somebody pointing a gun at him and taking his money from just a simple thing of selling lemonade", Smith said.

They are asking any neighbors who may have security video from outside their home to call the Union County Sheriff's Office. While searching the wooded area by the stand law enforcement found "the hat, black BB handgun", and the metal tin container in which the nine-year-old boy kept proceeds from lemonade sales.
