Thief Steals Cookies From Girl Scouts

SPARTANBURG, S.C., (UPI) — A thief in South Carolina’s Spartanburg County allegedly stole nearly $19,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies from a storage facility, police said.

An incident report filed this week said the thief made off with 450 cases of Girl Scout cookies — worth an estimated $18,900 — from Carey Moving and Storage, Inc., WSPA-TV, Spartanburg, S.C., reported Wednesday.

The cases contained about 5,400 boxes of cookies.

Brian Carey, the owner of the storage company, said surveillance footage from the facility has been handed over to investigators, adding that his company performs strict drug and background checks and if it turns out that one of his employees was involved in the theft, such behavior won’t be tolerated.

Carey also he would order more cookies to help reimburse the Girl Scouts for the loss.

A spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts of South Carolina said the cookies would have been sold at cookie booths across the 22 counties throughout the state. Proceeds from the cookie sales would have gone to help local scouts plan trips and organize community events.
