Who would try steal money from the Girl Scouts when there are cookies available? Two Massachusetts men were arrested Tuesday after attempting to steal $400 from a group of Girl Scouts selling cookies—and even allegedly injured their troopmaster in the process. Police say Nicholas Taverna, 22, and Cassidy Michalski, 25, tried to steal the cash box from a Girl Scout cookie station at Walmart in Northampton. The adult supervising the Scouts suffered a broken nose and arm injuries when trying to stop the would-be thieves. The pair have been charged with unarmed robbery, assault, and battery with a dangerous weapon. Not listed in the charges: heartless.
