Two Arrested Robbing Lemonade Stand

As we visit Warner Robins Georgia we find Thirteen-year-old Chelsea Edwards who just wanted to make some money selling lemonade at her lemonade stand.

The seventh-grader at Feagin Mill Middle School said a a man and woman came up to the stand and started asking questions about the price of lemonade.
It was then "the man bent down and seen the money jar, and he grabbed it."
"He flew in the car, and the girl was running after the car," Chelsea Edwards says.

Police identified the couple (above photo) as 20-year-old Gage Allen Turner and 21-year-old Amber Umbarger, both of Warner Robins.

Turner managed a getaway leaving Amber Umbarger behind, as a result she arrested her on the scene.

But Gage Allen Turner wasn't on the loose for long, he arrested around 3 a.m. 

Chelsea Edwards says the pair made off with $130, but what's worse, she says the money wasn't for her.
She was raising the money for her cousin, a 2-years-old, developmentally disabled,with a rare intestinal disorder.

Since the robbery, Edwards says neighbors have pitched in to fill a new money jar, but she says the experience has left a bitter taste.

"Why would he go up and rob three girls?" Chelsea Edwards asks.
