Thieves grab cash boxes from Tucson Girl Scouts

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Two Tucson-area Girl Scout troops were crime victims as thieves grabbed and ran off with the troops' cash boxes from cookie sales.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that both thefts took place over the weekend.

In one case, two women spoke with girls selling cookies outside a grocery store before one of the women grabbed the cash box containing about $375. The women fled in a car that had its license plate covered.

In the second case, a man grabbed a box with about $250 from a troop's table outside a bookstore. He ran off and hopped a nearby fence.

Girl Scouts council CEO Debbie Rich said the organization will consider what it can do to improve security, possibly including training for different scenarios.
