Ohio police have arrested a woman in North College Hill after she allegedly picked up an order of $1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies. According to WCPO in Cleveland, a Facebook post by the North College Hill Police Department reveals that the woman “took a large order of cookies to sell for a local troop on March 30. When it came time to turn in funds from cookie sales, the Girls Scouts of Western Ohio never received funds.” After trying to contact the woman for about six months, the Girl Scouts called the police, and the woman has now been arrested. As the NCH Police Department pragmatically put it on Facebook, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles.” We love it when our law enforcement uses food puns and attempt at lo-fi social media memes:
At about $4 a box, then, it’s estimated that this order must have consisted of 400 boxes. A lot for even the most rabid Thin Mints fan to handle, so—pure speculation here—perhaps this was an attempt to sell Girl Scout cookies at a higher rate on the black market, perhaps in the off-season when the cookies are less available? Very un-scout-like, to say the least.
