Spate of Girl Scout Cookie Robberies Reported

There are apparently people whose hearts are not melted by the Girl Scout song lyrics “a circle is round, it has no end, that’s how long I want to be your friend.” Three Girl Scout–cookie sellers have been hit by robberies in the past week, with the latest incident taking place Sunday in California. A suspect on a skateboard allegedly approached a Girl Scout–cookie stand outside a grocery store and grabbed $500 from the cash box and ran off. In Tucson, Arizona, thieves robbed two separate Girl Scout–cookie tables, netting $400 from one and $200 from the other. The robberies come after a break-in at a South Carolina cookie warehouse, where 450 cases of cookies worth an estimated $19,500 were taken.
