A young boy trying to work hard to make some extra money this summer is sad to discover just how cruel some people can be.
According to a Facebook post from the Everett Police Department in Washington, an 11-year-old boy named Jeremy set up a lemonade stand in the city.
Police say Jeremy used his allowance to set up the stand, hoping to make a return on his investment.
“As he worked in the sun trying to earn a little extra spending money, he was approached by the suspect in the photo, who offered him a $100 bill for a drink but demanded exact change,” the department wrote.

As one might imagine, most of the 11-year-olds running the lemonade stand weren’t prepared to break the $100 bill, but Jeremy did his best.
Police said he was able to amass $85 to give the suspect as change.
“After the suspect left, Jeremy went to the local gas station, where he learned that the $100 bill was fake and spent all of his pocket money,” the department wrote.
Using counterfeit money is a despicable crime. While some criminals may believe that they are somehow “sticking to the man” by using fake bills, the truth is that the federal government will not be harmed by this act. .

Taking advantage of anyone in this way is clearly wrong, but doing the same to a child? That’s the new low, which is why the Everett Police Department is working hard to catch the suspect.
“While our detectives work hard to close every case, this case has caused a particular relationship with them and they want to do everything they can to get justice for Jeremy and arrest him. this impostor,” the post said.
“We ask our community to call our tip line, (425) 257-8450 or send us a Facebook message if you recognize this individual.”
In a comment on the post, the department provided a link to the GoFundMe page that has been set up for Jeremy. The description of the fundraiser explains that a woman named Amy set it up, and she says she’s neighbors with Jeremy and his family.
“Jeremy is 11 years old and quite an entrepreneur,” Amy wrote. “He was the hard-working boy in the middle of his lemonade stand, more than just lemonade (If you ever crave cotton candy, you know who to watch), mowing the neighborhood lawn and shoveling snow in winter. bronze.
“He has a dream of owning his own vending machine business in the future. I am starting with a goal of $250 to help cover his loss and give him some extra money so he can expand his business.”
With the permission of Jeremy’s parents, Amy’s fundraising blows up that goal. As of Sunday, it had raised $9,000 from 432 donors.
As disappointing as the suspect’s actions, it’s nice to see so many Americans still have hearts and are willing to donate to this young man.
