SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Police are looking for a cookie crook. Authorities in Spartanburg, South Carolina, say someone has swiped nearly $19,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies. More than 5,000 boxes of Thin Mints and Shortbread cookies were taken from a storage company, where they were being kept before going out to cookie booths across the state. Storage company owner Brian Carey says the cookie caper breaks his heart. He's helped to store cookies for the scouts for more than 40 years. And Carey vows to help the Girl Scout troops affected by the loss.
