NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH — An Ohio woman has been arrested after stealing more than $1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies, police said.

Noel Hines, 31, is accused of taking a large delivery of Girl Scout cookies to sell for a local troop, according to information from North College Hill police on Facebook.

Police say Hines, who was reportedly working as a sales manager, took the order of cookies on March 30.

But when it came time to turn in funds from cookie sales, the Girls Scouts of Western Ohio never received funds from Hines, according to court documents. She also allegedly kept the cookies.

The company attempted to obtain payments from Hines, but eventually ended up filing charges against her.

She was arrested on one count of theft while at North College Mayors Court on other unrelated charges.

Hines is next scheduled to appear in court on November 28.

North College Hill Police appeared to have a sense of humor regarding the situation. "That's the way the cookie crumbles," they posted on Facebook.
