Police shut down a Girl Scout cookie stand
VILLA RICA, Ga. (KABC) -- Police in Georgia are apologizing after shutting down an illegal retail operation.
It was a cookie stand run by Girl Scouts. The troop had set up the stand on a sidewalk in a small town just outside Atlanta.
A police officer walked up to the girls and their adult troop leaders and asked them if they had the proper permits. They didn't.
"And we were told that we just needed to pack up our cookie booth," said troop leader Kathy Crook. "We would need to go and get a peddler's permit, and the customers that were needed to be turned away."
"It was going good and then he came up," said one Girl Scout.
One girl said she was scared because she thought the adults would be arrested. Both the mayor and police chief have apologized and even offered to throw the girls a pizza party.
As for the cookie stand, it should be up and running Saturday, with the proper permit.
