Odessa police launched a theft investigation after more than $25,000 went missing from the Girl Scouts organization last week, according to authorities.
The person who reported the crime says that the missing money stems from Girl Scout cookie sales, according to Odessa police Cpl. Steve LeSueur.
LeSueur says that no arrests have been made in connection to this case but that an investigation is ongoing. The theft was reported around 9 o’clock Friday morning, June 23, according to an Odessa police crime blotter report.
The crime blotter report also describes the theft complaint as “currency that should have been turned in to Product Sales Director,” as listed on June 23.
