A Girl Scout cookie stand was held up at gun point in Union City, California. The victims were a 12-year-old scout and her mother.
The suspect is a teenage male who reportedly appeared as a normal customer when he first came to the booth, but came back with a handgun. He demanded cash and fled.
The Union City Police Department decided to purchase the scout's entire inventory. On Thursday, the sergeant presented the scout and her mother a check for $1000 to make up for the stolen cookies. The remaining inventory was delivered to the police department:

This is not the first Girl Scout cookie-related robbery, even this week. An 8-year-old scout was robbed in Philadelphia, and a man in Oklahoma was arrested for trying to barter cookies for vodka.
