Bandit Steals Girl Scout Cookie Money But The Girls Fight Back

There were some Girl Scouts selling cookies outside of a Texas Walmart on Saturday, during a windy and cold day.

About 2:00 p.m. a man in a car went over to them. According to a story from San Antonio tv station KENS, the man asked them how much the cookies were. The girls thought it was a potential customer. As they were telling him, another man in the car yelled to the ‘buyer’ to hurry up. The man that inquired about the cookies grabbed their cash box, ran over to the car and drove off.

One of the girls, Rachel Johnson ran to the car and hung onto it as the men were driving away. While she was being dragged, another girl, Iravia Cotton ran to help her friend. She started hitting a boy that was in the front seat. Johnson said “Who steals from a Girl Scout? I mean, seriously, it’s like the worst thing ever,” she said. “I hope your face hurts from when Iravia punched you — jerks!”

The thieves got away with an estimated $200 dollars. No one was seriously injured. Johnson ended up with some bumps and bruises.

The public relations manager for the Girl Scouts, Mona L. Tolbert issued the following statement: “The safety and well-being of the girls is always our top priority. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is our most visible time of the year, but nothing is more important than the well-being of our girls and volunteers.” The full statement can be seen at KENS’s website.

How low can some be to steal from the Girl Scouts?
