IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 61-year-old Iowa City man has been accused of robbing a boy who was looking for lawns to mow.
The boy was knocking on doors Sunday to inquire about doing the yard work when he met Kevin Shannon at one house. Police say Shannon gave the boy $10 and told the boy he was an undercover police officer.
Police say Shannon later got in his vehicle and drove up to the boy, pulled out a gun and demanded the boy return his money. The boy wasn't injured.
Officers arrived soon and arrested Shannon. He faces several charges, including felony theft, driving while intoxicated, and impersonating a public official.
Johnson County Jail records say Shannon remained in custody on Monday. Online court records don't list the name of Shannon's lawyer.
