Ohio woman stole over $1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies

NORTH COLLEGE HILL, Ohio. (WVLT) -- Ohio police have charged a woman after accusing her of stealing over $1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies.

Noel Hines, 31, allegedly ordered a large number of cookies to sell for a local troop on March 30. When it came time to turn in the funds, the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio never received them from her, according to court documents.

According to WTVF, the organization attempted to reach out to Hines for six months regarding the payment. Police arrested her on Tuesday and charged her with theft.

"That's the way the cookie crumbles," police posted on Facebook.
