SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) _ Authorities say someone stole nearly $19,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies from a warehouse in Spartanburg.
Investigators said more than 5,000 boxes of Thin Mints and Shortbread cookies were taken sometime this week from Carey Moving and Storage where they were being kept before they were to be sold at cookie booths in 22 counties across the state.
Storage company owner Brian Carey says the theft breaks his heart. He has helped store cookies for the Girl Scouts for more than 40 years.
Carey says he will help any Girl Scout troop affected by the loss by ordering more cookies if needed.
Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies don't have any suspects.
