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.
Have a great deal of trouble feeling bad for the GSA since they’ve become an affiliate of Planned Predators. I haven’t bought a GSA cookie in many, many years.
Obama’s sequestrification has begun.
Probably a pot head with the munchies.........
At the prices the GSA charges, $19K equals about 24 cookies.
Yeah isn’t it wonderful how they learned the trick of offering less for more?
I have been told that this is untrue. Most of the proceeds from the sale of the cookies goes to the national headquarters. The local troop gets a pittance.
I no longer buy cookies because of this. What I do instead is make a direct donation to the local troop.
I don't punish the local little girls just because their national leadership is morally bankrupt.
Well, there goes the price of thin mints!
What? Were they baked by Hostess?
Next time someone steals thousands of cases of boxed M&Ms, be sure to use the movie theater price per box rather than the dollar store price for the same exact product.
