One Girl Scout troop in Texas recently grappled with a thief while selling cookies outside an area Walmart.

The Fort Bend County Girl Scouts were robbed of their cookie money on March 3. According to police, a man approached their table outside the store pretending he was going to buy some cookies. He then grabbed the cash box and jumped into his vehicle.

The girls were quick to respond, however. One troop member attacked a person in the passenger seat, landing a heavy blow to his face. Another girl clung to the car as it sped off and was dragged several feet across the parking lot. But while the thief escaped, the incident was captured on store security cameras. Police hope to identify and apprehend the suspect, and return the cookie money to the Scouts.

Each year, the Girl Scouts sell approximately 200 million boxes of cookies, bringing in roughly $760 million, according to a Girl Scout fact sheet. Proceeds go to benefit the girls in the areas the cookies were sold.
