Just after 8 p.m., two males walked up to the area where the table was set up and Girl Scout Daley Eisenmann said she was sitting with her head down because she didn’t feel well. She said things didn’t seem right.
“I said I think we should put our money away because things look a little suspicious. So my friend Sophia went to the store because she was thirsty. Everyone was ducking (down) and no one was looking so they snatched it, grabbed it and ran off to Davie,” said Eisenmann.READ MORE: 50 Years Later, These Disney Employees Still At 'Happiest Place On Earth'
Eisenmann said she wasn’t sure if any cookies were taken because they hadn’t counted out what they had on hand.
Officers searched the surrounding area after the robbery, but didnât find the males or Eisenmann’s phone.
“We are grateful that the girls and their mothers were unharmed, and appreciate the quick response of local law enforcement, â said Lisa Johnson, Vice President of Marketing for the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida in a statement. âThe outpouring of support from the community has been especially heartwarming. The girls will not let this robbery undermine their efforts to reach their cookie selling goals, and their work will continue with the full support of their troop and families.”MORE NEWS: Stimulus Check Latest: Is A Fourth Relief Payment Coming?
