A South Carolina man is accused of stealing hundreds of boxes of Thin Mint and Shortbread Girl Scout Cookies, worth $18,900, that were to be delivered to Girl Scout troops.
37-year-old Christopher Maurice Morton, a driver for Carey Moving and Storage, confessed to stealing 450 cases of the cookies, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Morton is being charged with breach of trust over $10,000.
Brian Carey, owner of Carey Moving and Storage, said his company has been distributing the famous cookies to troops for more than 40 years.
Cary said after the initial delivery to the troops on February 15, his employees did an inventory last week and noticed the missing cookies, WYFF4 reported.
On Sunday, investigators found 352 cases of cookies behind an abandoned building.
On Wednesday, Morton was released from the Spartanburg County Detention Facility on a $10,000 bond, Goupstate reported.
