(Atlanta Journal-Constitution ) Their cookie money may have been stolen. But there will be a happy ending for some East Point Girl Scouts after all.

After selling 1,400 boxes, or $4,900 worth, of cookies, the troop was supposed to earn $700 — enough for badges, a banquet and a trip to an amusement park.

But instead, girls’ parents say the mother that was in charge of collecting the money pocketed it, Channel 2 Action News reported. The troop leader filed a report with East Point police.

“It’s a terrible example,” Brian Scott, a parent, told Channel 2. “It goes against everything the Girl Scouts are supposed to be about.”
