Last month, a 14-year-old Troy teen was arrested and charged with robbing a liquor store after his mom called the cops on him. Officers were dispatched to Capitol Wine and Liquor in the 6000 block of Rochester Road on March 29 at 5:38 p.m. for a reported robbery, according to the Troy Police Department.
A store employee told police that a young man approached the counter and started demanding she “empty the register.” The young man kept his hand in the pocket of his hooded sweatshirt rather than producing a gun. The employee agreed and handed over the cash to the suspect, who then fled the scene on foot.
Several hours later, authorities received a call from a woman reporting that her son was behaving weird and had a large amount of money in his possession that he really shouldn’t have.
Police were called to the woman’s home and spoke with her 14-year-old son.
The teen eventually confessed to police that he had robbed the store earlier that day. He was then arrested and taken to the police station for processing. The teen’s identity has not been revealed.
