Police: After finishing dinner, teen robs restaurant

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - A 14-year-old boy is charged with armed robbery after Gulfport Police say he stole from a restaurant on East Pass Road Friday night.

Investigators say the teen had dinner at Lupita's Mexican Restaurant, but before he left, he pulled out a handgun and demanded money.

Workers at the restaurant called police as soon as he left, and gave officers a description. Based on that, the teen was tracked down just west of the business and the stolen property was recovered.

The teen is not being identified. He was being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center in lieu of a $75,000 bond.
