LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A 50-year-old man has received prison time for stealing a Girl Scout’s money during a cookie drive outside a south Lansing Kmart.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://on.lsj.com/1Y81ZiW ) that Thomas Dawkins was sentenced Thursday to eight to 25 years. Dawkins, of DeWitt Township, pleaded guilty last month to two counts of larceny.

Prosecutors have said Dawkins snatched a cash box with hundreds of dollars from the girl’s table, where she was selling cookies on March 29 and ran off.
