Girl Scouts Robbed of Cookie Money in Front of Grocery Store

by Patrick Herron

A Girl Scout troop that was selling cookies in front of the Safeway at 14939 Shady Grove Rd in Rockville had their money box stolen over the weekend.  According to Rockville Police, “On Sunday, February 12, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. a mother and daughter were selling boxes of Girl Scout cookies outside of the Safeway in Fallsgrove Village Center. An unknown man walked up to their table and grabbed the money box containing approximately $300.00.” FOX5 reports that the troop does not want to press charges if the suspect is found, they only want their money back.

A parent involved in the incident posted the following message nextdoor: “Hi all, this is a community safety announcement as there are many Girl Scouts in the neighborhood. Today, my troop was robbed during their cookie booth sale in front of the Shady Grove Safeway. Fortunately, no one was injured. However, the “suspect” brazenly reached over the cookies on the table to grab the cash box directly in front of two girls with an adult female on either side…and a security camera looking directly on. Law enforcement are currently investigating.”
