Texas Girl Scouts fight back after being robbed of cookie money

Via III Percent Patriots

If there's a badge for courage in the face of danger, the members of a Girl Scout troop in Fort Bend County, Texas, deserve it. They tried to fight off a thief who stole their hard-earned cookie money this weekend outside a Wal-Mart.

But the girls might get sweet justice after all: Security cameras at the store captured the crime on video, and it has been turned over to law enforcement.

"Stealing from a Girl Scout? It's as low as you are going to get," Bob Haenel, spokesman for the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Department, told The Times. "I can put a lot of labels on that, but hardly any of them you can print."

Here's what authorities said happened: Girl Scouts were selling cookies outside a Wal-Mart about 1:50 p.m. on Saturday when a black Toyota Camry drove up with two male passengers. One of the males walked over and began talking to the girls, asking about the price and what cookies were available. The girls told that they thought they were going to ring up a sale.

"Out of nowhere he just took the whole box of money that we had and jumped in the car.
