Girl Scout cookie stand robbed of over $600 by buyer: Seattle police

On a cold Seattle night, Girl Scouts selling cookies outside a grocery store were robbed of over $600, police say.  

Jennifer Johanson, an adult who was with the girls Sunday outside a Northgate QFC store, told Seattle’s KING-TV that a man came up to the girls multiple times — buying cookies, returning them and ultimately, robbing them.

“I saw him out of the corner of my eye walk towards us, and I was like, I guess he’s going to get more cookies, and he started running, and he pushed past one of the girls and grabbed the money,” Johanson told KING. 

Seattle Police Department say the incident happened just before 8 p.m. The man, who was caught on surveillance video, took a money bin holding over $600 and then ran away, police say.

Police are still looking for the alleged thief and are asking people to contact Seattle Police Department’s North Precinct detectives with information, “before, hypothetically, small, highly-mobile teams of Girl Scouts … do.”
