Cops arrested James and Evette Harris on charges of armed robbery, accusing the couple of driving their son to a convenience store that he's accused of holding up at gunpoint last year.
The son, Jaqueal Harris, 18, has been in the county jail since Saturday, held on numerous felony charges.
Cops say the parents drove Harris and three acquaintances to the Sunshine Foods convenience store where a robbery involving a gun took place.
Not only did the parents hang around while their son helped rob the store, but they gave the alleged robbers a ride after the robbery, the cops say.
Then Jaqueal Harris paid his parents for their help using the stolen cash, police say.
But here's the really happy ending.
The kid and his parents have been reunited. In jail
