Denise Gordon-Kamm, 59, went to the Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa office on March 6. During her trip, she purchased boxes of Girl Scout cookies totally $3,000 using a check. When troop leaders attempted to deposit Gordon-Kamm's check, it bounced.
When the check returned for insufficient funds, troop leaders paid Gordon-Kamm a visit at her home, seeking to recover the cookies.
Gordon-Kamm did not cooperate with troop leaders, leading to the police being called. Police arrived on the scene and arrested Gordon-Kamm for theft and check fraud. The officers were able to recover some boxes of cookies from Gordon-Kamm's car, but several boxes are unaccounted for.
Perhaps next time, troop leaders will insist on cash only when selling cookies in large quantities.
