Residents of Midway, Georgia should thank their police for working to stop the very serious crimes being committed in their town. No, not robberies or anything like that…but a lemonade stand set up by some kids that wanted to pay for a trip to a water park:
Midway police have shut down a lemonade stand run by three girls, saying the stand lacked a business license and required permits.
The girls had been operating for one day when Midway’s police chief and another officer cruised by. They had been trying to earn enough money to go to a water park.
The girls needed a business license, peddler’s permit and food permit to operate, even on residential property. The permits cost $50 a day or $180 per year.
Midway Police Chief Kelly Morningstar says police didn’t know how the lemonade was made, who made it or what was in it.
One girl, 14-year-old Casity Dixon, says the three had to listen to police and shut down.
The girls are now doing chores and yard work to make money.
Clearly, these kids had hired illegal immigrants and they were spiking the lemonade with vodka, illicit drugs and illegally obtained Oxycontin.
