Sheriff looking for Girl Scout cookie money box thief


Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen announced that on March 6 Girl Scouts of America, Troop 2439 were selling cookies outside of Walmart in Canal Winchester, when a suspect approached the table and took their cash box that contained their money for the days’ sales.
The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-20s, approx. 6 feet to 6’02” tall, 150 to 175 pounds, wearing khaki pants and a blue sweatshirt. The suspect was chased by several witnesses and was observed getting in to a 1994 to 1998 red Ford Mustang convertible before fleeing the area.
Phalen said, “This is one of the more despicable crimes that can be committed against society and we will pursue charges to the fullest extent of the law.”
It is believed the Mustang drove around several lots before the theft occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective James Nicolia at (740) 652-7338 or
