NEW YORK - New York police have ticketed a man they say set up a table on a Brooklyn sidewalk to sell Girl Scout cookies without a license. advertisement But the suspects 13-year-old daughter disputes the account and says her father was only helping her deliver pre-ordered cookies in the neighborhood. Officers issued a summons for unlicensed vending to Hoi Howard Louis over the weekend. An adult 55-year-old male who had set up a table along a busy stretch was given a summons, Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne said Wednesday. No Girl Scouts were seen by officers at the time the summons was issued. But Grace Marie Louis said she was there and that her father was preparing the orders when police pulled up in a car. Donna Ceravolo, director of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County, told Reuters that Grace Marie and her father were delivering pre-ordered cookies. I make no bones about the Girl Scout cookie program, said Ceravolo. It would not be nearly as successful without the support of parents. I dont apologize for it. The girl, who has sold about 600 boxes of cookies this year, is helping her troop save up for a trip to Hawaii or Europe. Ceravolo said the Girl Scouts would provide counsel in court if needed. The fine, if any, will be determined by a judge.

Yes, if you let one greedy little Girl Scout start selling deadly "snack" cookies on the street, you'll open the flood gates to all kind of illegal activity. Why pretty soon, you'd have illegal immigrants selling fake watches, CD's and tapes, hot chesnuts and playing 3 card monte all over the place. You just can't allow such nefarious activities right there in River City.
Conspiracy to sell cookies. This is big. If all the facts are presented here, this is an early education to this dad's daughter on how the gubmint wants it's hands in everyone's pockets. Pathetic. btw I like the shortbread cookies.
Trouble with a capital "T" that rhymes with with "C" that stands for "cookie"...
I hope they put this in an episode of "Third Watch" or some other NY Cop show.
That would actually be hilarious. Or maybe I have a sick sense of humor. LOL
