A 9-Year-Old Boy's Lemonade Stand Was Robbed at Gunpoint

9-Year-Old Boy’s Lemonade Stand Robbed at Gunpoint

A teenager who held up a North Carolina lemonade stand for $17 was still at large Monday, and authorities said they hoped to track him through surveillance footage and possible DNA and fingerprint tests.

Deputies say the young drink vendor reported that a male teenager with a camouflage hat and black shirt placed a black handgun to the boy's stomach Saturday, demanded money and then fled on foot.

Deputies found a trail in the woods where a camouflage hat, BB gun and the stolen metal tin were recovered.

"I've never heard of a lemonade stand robbery", said Tony Underwood, Union County Sheriff's Office chief communications officer.

Neighbors describe the boy as an entrepreneur, with lemonade, landscaping, and mowing businesses. "That one takes it to a new level". "Everybody talks about how he brings smiles to everybody".

An estimated 689 people were still on Rinjani, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho , a spokesman of the national disaster mitigation agency. Video footage showed ambulances lining the streets of Lombok and many houses damaged with only parts of brick walls standing.

The boy has been selling lemonade to raise money and buy a new lawnmower for his other weekend business.

Mr Smith said that his son will continue to sell lemonade, but with added safety precautions.

"We kinda explained it to him that bad things do happen to good people and you never know when it's going to happen to you".

They are asking any neighbors who may have security video from outside their home to call the Union County Sheriff's Office.
