A South Carolina man was charged with stealing $19,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies, or 450 cases. Police were able to apprehend the man after asking the public to be on the lookout for anyone exhibiting any suspicious behavior, like gaining two hundred pounds in a day.
Parents may want to clip this article to show kids on the day after Halloween when children express skepticism that a thief would break in just to steal their Halloween candy.
You may not feel much sympathy for this cookie crook, but I feel bad for all the teasing he’s going to get in prison. I’ve never been to jail, but I’m assuming some crimes win more street credibility than others, and I can’t imagine stealing Girl Scout cookies will do anything to elevate your standing in the jail yard pecking order. If I were his cellmate, I’d try and get creative with my teasing, and I’d stay up late each night trying to think of a newspaper headline to wake him up with each morning.
