RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) - San Bernardino County authorities have arrested a man they say robbed a lemonade stand.

The Sheriff’s Department says two 13-year-old girls had set up the stand Wednesday in Rancho Cucamonga when a man came up and said he had no cash, but wanted some lemonade.

The girls gave him some and the man began to walk away but then he came back, pushed over the stand and fled with the money box.

It took only minutes for a sheriff’s deputy to find and arrest 18-year-old Santini Tate of Riverside on suspicion of strong-arm robbery.

Authorities say he was carrying $30 from the lemonade stand.

He remained jailed Thursday.
