Woman steals more than $1,600 in Girl Scout cookies: cops

An Ohio woman’s apparent love for Girl Scout cookies led to her arrest.

Noel Hines allegedly stole a “large order of Girl Scout cookies” in March that was intended for a local North College Hill troop, officials with the North College Hill Police Department wrote on Facebook this week.

The woman never returned the cookies or paid for the order, which totaled more than $1,600, according to authorities.

Following “multiple” attempts over the past six months to contact Hines about the cookies, authorities filed theft charges against the woman.

On Tuesday, police arrested Hines while she was at the North College Hill Mayors Court for “unrelated charges,” according to the North College Hill Police Department, which joked: “That’s the way the cookie crumbles.”
