Thief steals from Girls Scout outside CA shop

ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) - Police are searching for a man who stole from a group of Girls Scouts in San Diego County who were collecting money toward a program that sends cookies to U.S. troops.

Escondido police Lt. Mike Kearney said the suspect walked up to the Girls Scout table outside a grocery store Saturday and snatched a donation jar filled with about $45.

Kearney said the money was supposed to go toward "Operation Thin Mint," a local Girls Scout program that sends cookies and notes of support to deployed troops.

He said the suspect fled in a car. Witnesses jotted down the license plate, and police were trying to track down the vehicle.
