Police arrest alleged Girl Scout thief

Police arrested a juvenile and charged the suspect with stealing from a Girl Scout troop.

On October 28, a Girl Scout troop was selling cookies in front of a Wal-Mart located at 3300 Crain Highway.

A man approached and asked about the price of the cookies. He then grabbed the cash box and fled on foot.

A witness chased the man toward the rear of the Wal-Mart until a second man said he would catch the first.

Believing the second man was a Good Samaritan, the witness stopped chasing the man.
