The boy's father, Philip Smith, said the thief got away with only $17. The boy's card describes him as an "organic lemonade stand operator, designer, dog walker, reptile caregiver, lawn mower, professional ring bearer".

It happened in the Town of Monroe in Union County about 30 miles southeast of Charlotte.

"You think of a child as young as this being robbed at a lemonade stand - just when you think you've heard it all, something else will surprise you", he told WSOCTV.

- Deputies in Union County are investigating an armed robbery of a 9-year-old boy's lemonade stand.

"It's heart-wrenching. That little boy will never be the same", Smith said.

His family is not letting this incident ruin his dream.

"It's not going to stop us", he said.

Union County Sheriff's Office deputies are seeking a teenager who allegedly pointed a black handgun at the boy's stomach and took his cashbox before fleeing on a bicycle, according to WSOC-TV. He said a camouflage hat and BB pistol found along with a metal cash box was found in some nearby woods and could be checked for fingerprints and DNA.
