Cookie-selling Girl Scout troops in Ariz. robbed twice within 24 hours
Thieves made off with more than $500 in cookies sales after two Girl Scout troops were robbed within 24 hours in Arizona.
One troop was hit Saturday night outside of a Fry's food store in midtown when two women in their twenties ran off with their cash box.
"They decided to steal our money box and they grabbed it and ran and got into a vehicle and drove off," Girl Scout member Micahela Everett told KVOA-TV, an NBC affiliate in the Tuscon area.
Another troop was targeted less than a day later in front of a Bookman's near Speedway and Wilmot, where a young man stole more than $200.
"As soon as the box was gone, my first instinct was to run and just run," said Jennifer Princepiper, a troop mother who chased after the thief.
Soon after KVOA reported the incident, one viewer donated every penny that was stolen.
"After was all said and done, people just started handing us their money and they couldn't get them to take cookies, but they more than made up for what we lost," said Nicole Hopkins, a mother at the scene during the second theft, KVOA reports.
