Eight-year-old attempts to rob Florida store with loaded gun!

Eight Year Old ThiefAn eight-year-old Florida boy found himself in hot water after he tried to pull off an armed robbery.

The juvenile, identified only as Jaden, apparently stole his mother’s gun from her purse and went to King Foods to pull off the heist.

“He say he wanted to go to the park. I told him go ahead. He gave me a hug,” his mother Eboni Alls told CBS Miami.

Surveillance video from the store showed the boy walk into the store wearing a bicycle helmet and baggy clothing before he approached the counter and pointed the gun at the clerk demanding money.

“I see the boy take the gun. He says give me the money,” Robert Espinal, a store employee, told CBS. “At the moment I didn’t know if it was a real gun or fake but I took it seriously.

“As soon as I moved I reached over to him, twisted his wrist, took the gun away.”

Employees tried to get the boy into the office while they called the police.

Alls told CBS she was home when the incident happened.

“When I grabbed my purse, it was so light. I’m like I knew I was missing something. I said where’s my gun? The first thing I thought was I hope Jaden don’t have my gun,” she said.

Alls said if she could do it again she “would have had the gun locked up in a safe somewhere.”

Neither Jaden or his mother have been charged with any crime.
