Vandals destroyed Girl Scout cookies using paint, oil, and detergent, according to a March 4 The Epoch Times report. The Scout cookie destruction happened after vandals broke into a garage owned by Jeff and Dee Brown in Monroe, Washington.
The Browns actually caught the three teen vandals in the garage wrecking havoc on $2,500 cases of Girl Scout cookies along with nearly everything else inside the garage. Dee Brown said,
"I was shocked. I was heartbroken. It's something I just don't understand."
It is heartbreaking. About 52 cases of Girl Scout cookies worth $2,500 were destroyed in the by the possibly heartless vandals. The Scouts sell cookies in order to fund their annual Girl Scout camp. For many Scouts, this cookie fundraiser is their one chance at getting to go to camp. Why would somebody destroy this opportunity for little girls?
Even though Vandals destroyed so many Scout cookies, Dee Brown's girls are still selling cookies. Hopefully somebody will help replace the $2,500 in cookies that the vandals destroyed.
Even so, these Do-si-dos, Samoas, Savannah Smiles, and other cookies are lost forever, and these little girls had to learn a harsh lesson at a young age. Sometimes people are mean.
