A Floyd County woman has been indicted, charged with stealing more than $15,000 in Girl Scout Cookies according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Leah Ann Vick, a 26-year old troop leader of the Wilderness Road Girl Scout Chapter, picked up more than $15,000-worth of cookies in Pikeville on February 1. Normally, leaders pick up the cookies for their scouts to sell, issuing payment at the end of the spring season once the cookies are sold. Vick allegedly picked up the cookies and proceeded to go AWOL.
“She has never paid for any of them and, anyone who has tried to contact her about them, has not been able to contact her,” said Bartley. “The case was a little confusing because she may have picked up cookies for other groups. The ones that she did pick up, at least for her own troop, were never sold by the troop. She picked up the cookies and never took them to them, so we don’t know what she did with them.”
Authorities are trying to find Vick but so far have been unsuccessful. I know the right man for the job.
