Thieves grab cookie cash boxes from Scouts

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Two Tucson-area Girl Scout troops were crime victims as thieves grabbed and ran off with the troops’ cash boxes from cookie sales.

Both thefts took place over the weekend.

In one case, two women spoke with girls selling cookies outside a grocery store before one of the women grabbed the cash box containing about $375. The women fled in a car that had its license plate covered.

In the second case, a man grabbed a box with about $250 from a troop’s table outside a bookstore. He ran off and hopped a nearby fence.
