You gotta love those boys in blue.
A boy named Gracen who set up a lemonade stand in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, last Thursday had made $20 when junior high boys came in and stole his cash. His sign had said, “Lemonade on the right. Mostly in the morning.”
According to Fox News, Gracen’s dad, Mark, said that the boys were on bikes when they stole the money from a cup.
“Two junior high kids on bikes drove by his stand and stole $20 out of his cup,” Mark said. “Gracen called me up and asked me if he should call the police. I said that he probably shouldn’t bother them.”
He added, “But I did pray for him over the phone using the verse from Proverbs 6:31 that says whatever the thief steals, he has to pay back sevenfold.”
After Mark had thought about it, he called his son back to tell him that he thought he should call the police after all. Hopefully they might be able to help.
“Later I called him back and told him to go ahead and call the police that if they weren’t busy maybe they would help him out,” said Mark.
“When I got home,” he added, “there were two Brooklyn Park police cars on the street in front of his lemonade stand and the nice lady officer told him she was going to replace his $20, and she said, ‘but I want Dad to hold on to it,’ so she gave it to me to hold for him. After that, a third police car showed up, and that officer asked for 4 cups of lemonade and gave him $5. By the end of the day, he had $50 because of the officers,” Mark said.
The next day, police visited the boy’s stand again. Mark and his wife couldn’t believe the generosity of their police task force.
“My wife and I were really blessed. In fact, the next day another officer stopped by for lemonade, and she was out there with tears in her eyes thanking him. She couldn’t believe that people would do this for a child. I had tears in my eyes too, that it was so precious that something so little could mean so much,” Mark said.
