A troop leader was charged with stealing $15,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies


Look. Stealing is bad. No endorsements here. But... we kinda understand the crime in this case. 

Girl Scout troop leader Leah Ann Vick, 26, has been indicted on charges of theft after she stole a colossal quantity of of the sweet treats, reports Mashable.

 A local Girl Scout branch reported a large amount of the cookies missing. Vick didn't just steal the cookies meant for her troop, but those meant for another troop as well. 

What's more, Vick is nowhere to be found. Authorities have visited several addresses in several towns associated with her, but she has yet to be located at any of them. 

Reports also indicate that Vick hasn't sold any of the boxes she stole. Which could mean that she just wanted to save all of the cookies for herself. 

Only in Kentucky, are we right?

Unfortunately the scouts might be missing out on sales for other reasons this year.
