Police: Man Pulled Gun On Cookie-Hawking Girl Scout

When you see a co-worker pass around the inevitable Girl Scout cookie order form and grumble about how you had to do door-to-door sales back when you were a kid, keep this story in mind. A family alleges that a Girl Scout selling cookies in a California neighborhood had a gun pulled on her by a potential customer.

The girl’s father accompanied her on her sales call, and phoned police. The neighbor was taken into custody and his weapon seized.

For the sake of the girls and the cookies, we hope that this isn’t a sign that we’re about to see a repeat of the Girl Scout Cookie Crime Wave of 2013.
