A Terre Haute man is charged with stealing money from a group of children running a lemonade stand after one of the kids chased him to a nearby home and called police.

Police say the 18-year-old man faces a felony robbery charge for stealing $17.50 from the lemonade stand yesterday afternoon.

One of the children running the stand says the man walked up and said, "Give me your money." Dominique Morefield then chased the man to a nearby house and called police, who arrested him. He's scheduled to appear in court today.

Another of the young entrepreneurs said he couldn't believe anyone would steal from a lemonade stand. Twelve-year-old Fred Erstine said, "That's just low."
