PARMA, Ohio - An 11-year-old Parma girl hopes whoever snatched her purse will return it, along with the $70 she earned from her lemonade stand.
The girl and her friends were sitting outside around 5:30 p.m. Sunday when a tan minivan pulled up and a boy, about 12 years old, jumped out and grabbed the purse.
Police said he then jumped back into the van and a woman driver took off.
The boy got away with the girl's $80 Guess handbag and about $500 worth of her belongings, including a Kodak camera, iPod touch, and her lemonade stand money. It was cash she earned and planned to use to go to church camp next week.
Two people stopped by the stand to offer help, with one donating $50.
