The robbery happened last week. 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. 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. The case could wind up being handled in a youth court.
