Wait…What? Children’s Lemonade Stand Robbed Of $150

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. But if you choose to sell it at a homemade lemonade stand, be weary of keeping your profits in a jar that can easily be pilfered by some jerk. This was the case in central Georgia when three young teens were raising money for a hospitalized toddler and had raised $150 for the admirable cause. Alas, the local sheriff’s office is reporting that a man and woman approached the girls Saturday and the man snatched the money jar from a 13-year-old girl. By the way, $150 for a lemonade stand? That must be awesome lemonade!

Writing for WMAZTV, Vanessa Ruffes reports:

“The man bent down and seen the money jar, and he grabbed it,” Edwards says, recalling what happened Saturday.

Edwards says a man and woman had approached the stand she was running with her two friends. She says they started asking questions about the price of lemonade.

That’s when Edwards says the man reached down and snatched the jar of money she held between her legs.

“He flew in the car, and the girl was running after the car,” Edwards says.

Houston County investigators say the couple is 20-year-old Gage Allen Turner and 21-year-old Amber Umbarger, both of Warner Robins.
