This kind of thing just disgusts me. How pathetic to steal from a bunch of Girl Scouts!

Lowest of the low. I hope they catch this guy.

When this guy is caught, he needs to be dressed in a Girl Scout uniform and made to stand on a street corner with a big sign advertising cookies. (After he gets out of jail.)

It takes a real "HE MAN" to steal from a bunch of girl scouts. I'll bet his mother is real proud of him. What a jerk. I hope they find him.

It has never crossed my mind to steal money from Girls Scouts.

Now, it has crossed my mind to steal some Samoas and Thin Mints, but hey, don't judge me.

The troop leader made a mistake by having the money out in plain sight. I have sat with my daughter at a number of these "booths", and two adults are required, and our troop leader holds the money in her hand, behind the table. When customers pay the girls take the money, give it to the troop leader, and tell her how much change they need. A robbery like this would be impossible at our cookie booths. Shame on the thief, but shame on the troop leader as well for being so casual and unprofessional with the troop's money. Tough way to learn a lesson.

I agree, JJJJ
This was a crime of opportunity. Never, never give anyone the opportunity.
I'm sure the community will rally and get the girls even more money than they lost,
and hopefully the leaders will have learned a valuable lesson.
