AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Aurora police officers helped a Girl Scout troop recoup some of their cash after a thief took their cash box full of cookie proceeds.

KMGH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/21vYDLD ) that police received a call Saturday that a cash box with $325 in it was snatched from a table outside a grocery store where the scouts were selling cookies.

Officer Ryan Wenke says about 20 officers scraped together some bills to either donate or buy a box of cookies so the girl scouts didn’t leave without any money for their labor.

Police are still looking for whoever took the cash box.
