Male steals hundreds in cash from Girl Scout’s cookie stand; cops are disgusted: ‘We are talking about a little girl here’

News & Politics

A male was caught on surveillance video stealing a bag containing $450 in cash from a Girl Scout’s cookie stand in Fort Worth, Texas, last week, KDFW-TV reported.

What are the details?

The theft occurred around 2 p.m. Feb. 11 outside a Walmart on Clifford Street near White Settlement Road, the station said.

Police shared the video showing the hooded suspect exiting the store and then grabbing the cash from the cookie stand and running off, KDFW said, adding that the suspect hasn’t been caught. But cops did provide an image of the suspect in the hopes that someone can identify him, the station said.

“We are talking about a little girl here,” Officer Brad Perez with the Fort Worth Police Department told KDFW. “A little girl trying to sell Girl Scout cookies.”

Perez added to the station that “around $450 in cash” was stolen and that individuals have been reaching out to the the department “to see how they can help.”

KFDW said the suspect took the bag from a cart behind the cookie table.

‘It almost made me cry’

The station chatted with third-grader Brooke Martinez — who is in a different Girl Scout troop than the victim — as she sold cookies Monday at a bowling alley in Fort Worth.

Brooke’s grandmother, Kathy Taylor, watched the video of the theft and told KDFW that “it almost made me cry. Because it’s hard work, they work hard for this.”

Taylor told the station that this is her granddaughter’s third year selling cookies and that she keeps money hidden. But Brooke’s grandmother told KDFW it’s still easy to let your guard down.

“You trust everyone. Girl Scouts trust everyone, and Girl Scouts are honest, and they think everyone is, but it’s a hard lesson learned,” Taylor added to the station.

Officer Perez noted to KDFW that numerous individuals also contacted police so they could get in touch with the victim’s family and donate money to offset the stolen cash.
