Girl Scout Cookies 101 Yummy New Flavor And Where To Find Them Near You

Union City authorities are searching for the person responsible for holding the mother of a Girl Scout at gunpoint this week.

On Wednesday, Union City police were called to a reported robbery that happened in front of the Safeway store located at 1790 Decoto Road.

Meanwhile, police said detectives are still looking for the teenage boy. Neither of the victims were hurt.

So officers made a decision to donate their own money to cover the cost of the theft as well as purchase the remaining cookie boxes. The department posted a photo on Facebook Thursday showing the mother being presented with the check.

The group spokesperson also said this is the first robbery incident anyone can remember ever taking place.

"The mother and daughter were not injured but understandably were visibly upset", Mendez said in a statement.

Police didn't offer much information about a description of the suspect, other than it was a male between 16 and 19 years old.

Union City, Calif. police officers reached for their own wallets after Girl Scouts had their proceeds stolen outside a grocery store.

But for Bennett, the robbery was a frightening lesson.
