What should I do if cookie funds are stolen at a cookie booth?

This is terrible, but unfortunately, this has happened. 

If someone takes money or cookies from your booth, do not attempt to physically recover the stolen items and do not allow the girls to do so.

Instead, get a good description of the offender(s), call 911, and alert local security (if available). Make sure girls know what to do in case of theft.

The troop leader/parent should notify the local authorities and Zandra Washington, Chief Operating Officer, at Girl Scouts of Citrus, of the incident. The troop leader/parent should not speak with the media without council’s approval.
