Sunday evening my 11 year old daughter, myself, another mom with her two daughters were selling Girl Scout cookies in front if the QFC on Northgate Way and Roosevelt. There was a creepy guy who kept coming up and talking to us. Buying cookies and then asking for his money back, asking a lot of questions...just acting shady. Ten minutes before we were set to close up he ran over and grabbed all the money; over $600 the kids had earned, sitting in the cold, selling cookies to support their troop. No one was hurt, thank God, just really shaken up. I hate that the girls had to experience that. QFC staff were wonderful, police were called and a report filed. Hopefully there was footage of the guy captured when he was waiting in the store. I don't like to think of the level of desperation it takes to steal from sweet, freezing Girl Scouts but I hope it was worth it. Actually, that's not true; I hope he's identified and apprehended. I guess the girls have earned their much-coveted "Urban Crime" badges.
