A lady in Florida was the getaway driver for her 15-year-old son while he robbed a convenience store…

 A mother and her 15-year-old son are both facing charges after he robbed a convenience store at gunpoint and sat in the car as a getaway driver.

Amanda Meador is being charged with robbery with a firearm and neglect of a child in connection to the robbery.

 The teenage son allegedly entered the store wearing a mask and holding a firearm, and demanded money from a fearful cashier.

While the robbery was happening, Meador backed up her minivan to the store.

“(She) was a willing participant in that she knew that this armed robbery was going to happen, she served as a lookout and she was also there as this minor (escaped) from the store,” Seminole County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Kealing said.
