Man wanted in Girl Scout Cookie caper turns himself into police
TAYLORSVILLE — A man who police say stole money from Girl Scouts turned himself in to police at 6:35 p.m. Wednesday.
Police say Andrew Kvenvold, 24, was one of two people involved in robbing Girl Scouts who were selling cookies Saturday in the parking lot at Wal-Mart, 2600 W. 5400 South. Police arrested Kayla Long, 24, Tuesday in connection with the theft.
Girl Scouts and the community were outraged when members of Troop 2532 were robbed. Police say a man got out of a car, walked up to the Girl Scouts' table, acted as if he was going to buy cookies, grabbed their money from across the table and ran back to the car where he and a woman drove away.
Police were able to use surveillance footage to track down the vehicle, which was registered to Long.
Kvenvold had an outstanding warrant for aggravated robbery at the time of arrest, police said. He previously was convicted of attempted aggravated robbery in 2012. He served jail time and received a suspended prison sentence for that conviction.
Kvenvold was also convicted of misdemeanor retail theft in 2009.
