  • Tacoma Police Two men tried to rob Girl Scouts outside store

An armed robber in Tacoma, Washington attempted to rob Girl Scouts who were selling cookies outside a Fred Meyer store, the News Tribune reports.

The incident happened about 6:25 p.m.in front of a store in the 7200 block of Pacific Avenue, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said. The mother told the suspects that they did not have any money, and the suspects fled the area on foot. One of the men had a gun tucked into his waistband.

"Thank you so much for buying Girl scout cookies", said one Girl Scout. It gives them a leg-up on building a brighter future, and the best part is you don't have to feel guilty about eating a whole box of cookies in one sitting.
