The Great Cookie Caper

By Matt Motyka in News on Feb 12, 2009 9:50PM

2009_02_cookie.jpg WBBM is reporting that over $600 worth of Girl Scout cookies were recently stolen from the Carlisle Community Center in Carlisle, Ind. While not the first (or dumbest) Girl Scout cookie caper, this swindle seems to be the largest and most puzzling in recent memory. The thieves will be disappointed to discover that this year there are two to four fewer cookies in each box, due to the rising costs of transportation and baking (oh man, suckers!). And while Indiana police have yet to disclose any leads, don't fret; our crack Chicagoist sleuths have identified a person of interest [NSFW language]. Also not mentioned in the report, the 27 boxes of Trefoils remained untouched.
