Police: Underage teen accused in lemonade stand theft facing charge

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant Police say one of the teens involved in the theft of muffins from a Mount Pleasant family's lemonade stand will face a charge of driving without a license.

The teenager, whose identity was not released because he is a juvenile, was sent to family court where a judge is expected to set punishment.

Earlier on Wednesday, Mount Pleasant Police Inspector Chip Googe said no charges were filed in the theft of muffins stolen from three girls who were operating the stand. But police said arrangements had been made for restitution.

The suspects were 13 and 14 years old, Googe said.

A Mount Pleasant family told police a couple of teens stole goodies from three neighborhood girls on Sunday.

Blake Hart posted on Facebook Sunday night saying three neighborhood girls, one of whom is her daughter, worked all morning making signs and lemonade and baking three different kinds of muffins and chocolate chip cookies.

The girls were selling their goodies right outside of Quail Hollow neighborhood off of Rifle Range Road.

The girls explained in a video on Facebook two teens pulled over and acted like they were going to buy lemonade. In the midst of the transaction, one of the teens said, "Sike!" and they grabbed all of their muffins.

No police report was filed but Hart explains in her post "if my kids ever did something like this I would want to know."

As of 2 p.m. Monday, the Facebook post had more than 12,000 shares.
