Girl Scout Cookies Destroyed

Vandals Destroy Girl Scout Cookies

Monroe, WA – Vandals destroyed several hundred boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

Authorities said the teenagers responsible for the break-in destroyed anything within reach inside Jeff and Dee Brown’s garage. The couple discovered the teenagers inside their home early Sunday morning.

According to KIRO-7, the vandals destroyed the Girl Scout cookies before pouring motor oil, laundry detergent, and paint on the boxes. The teenagers ran away before police arrived on the scene.

Dee Brown said:

“I was shocked. I was heartbroken. It’s something I just don’t understand.”

Jeff Brown said his kids only get one chance every year to sell the Girl Scout cookies. He said taking this opportunity away from his children was “pretty rough.”

KOMO 4 explains that 52 cases were housed inside the Brown’s garage at the time the suspects struck. The vandals destroyed around $2,500 worth of Girl Scout cookies.

Authorities explained the suspects managed to escape with a small sledgehammer and an electric screwdriver. They also managed to splash paint on some of the other items inside the garage.

Dee Brown said that her daughters still intend to see the cookies despite the problem. She said “they’re still selling cookies, they’re still happy to be selling cookies.”

According to MYNorthwest, the folks at Girl Scouts of America have agreed to replace the damaged product.
