Man pleads not guilty to stealing Girl Scout cash

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A 20-year-old accused of snatching nearly $500 from a table where Girl Scouts were selling cookies has pleaded not guilty in Victorville Superior Court.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/YAfzNB ) Colin Sawyer entered the plea Wednesday to a petty theft charge for the incident outside a Phelan supermarket on Sunday night. He was arrested the next day after he was identified on store surveillance video.

Separately, Sawyer has also been charged with shoplifting and giving false information to a peace office. He also pleaded not guilty to those charges.

The alleged cookie money theft on Feb. 11 would have violated his probation terms, so he is being held without bail.
