TAYLORSVILLE, Utah — A group of Girl Scouts were selling cookies outside of a store on Saturday when a man and woman stole the money they had collected.
Girl Scout Troop 2532 was selling cookies in front of Wal-Mart, 5469 South Redwood Road. At about 4 p.m. a vehicle driven by a woman stopped and a male got out and approached the girls as if he intended to buy cookies. Girl Scout Kennedi Leon said that’s when the thief sprang into action.
“He asked how much the cookies were, and he was bringing out his wallet, and as he came closer, when he got really close, he grabbed the money and jumped in the car and they just drove off,” she said.
The suspect escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.
Kennedi said the theft shocked her, and she wishes the money could have gone where it was meant to.
