Girl Scout punches cookie monster [UPDATED]3/12/2012
"Who steals from a Girl Scout?" Rachel Johnson asked. "I mean, seriously, it's like the worst thing ever." Apparently, two cowards in a black Toyota do. Johnson and fellow Scout Iravia Cotton were selling cookies outside a Houston-area Walmart when a man approached their table and swiped their cash box before jumping in the Camry-turned-getaway car. Fueled by what the girls called "an adrenaline thing," they chased the pair and Cotton managed to punch one of the thieves through the passenger window. Unfortunately, the troop will be responsible for repaying the $200 that was stolen. "I hope your face hurts from where Iravia punched you," Johnson said. We do, too.
18-year-old Justin Rogers Zenon and an unnamed 16-year-old accomplice (we're referring to him as the Tagalong) have been arrested for stealing money from a pair of cookie-selling Scouts, charged with aggravated robbery and being all-around awful.
"We are both thankful and relieved to learn the two cookie theft suspects have been arrested," said a spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts. "This news is helpful as [the Scouts] try to put the incident behind them."
According to Click2Houston.com, the Scouts sent the sheriff's office "a cookie basket and a note" to thank them for their help.
