Girl Scout Sells More Than 300 Boxes of Cookies Near Pot Dispensary

Ohio woman accused of stealing $1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies

A woman in Cincinnati is accused of stealing more than $1,600 worth of cookies from a Girl Scout troop.

North College Hill police say Noel Hines stole $1,634 worth of cookies in late March. Police say Hines took a large order of cookies to sell from a local troop but never paid for the orders, police said. Police attempted to make contact with her for more than six months about receiving the payments.

Hines was arrested by police Tuesday and charged her with theft, WHIO news partner WCPO reported. Hines was arraigned Wednesday and released on her own recognizance until her next court appearance later this month.

A spokesperson with the Girls Scouts of Western Ohio told WCPO these situations are rare and adult volunteers undergo background checks. The organization will try to recover as much of the money as possible.
