Two little girls and their troop leader were robbed outside a North Side store Wednesday night. The Brownie troop leader became emotional as she told News 4 WOAI how she witnessed the thief steal from the two 3rd graders.(from WOAI-TV)
"We were finishing up our shift and we were packing up our cookies," explained the girls' troop leader.
That troop leader, who doesn't want to be identified, said a man then walked up to their table.
"I didn't even think he was looking at the money," said told News 4 WOAI. "I thought he was leaning over to look in the box, like 'What do you have in there?'"
She said then all of a sudden, the man snatched their bag of money and ran off. He got away with about $250. The troop leader chased him, but he got into a car with a woman and drove off.
What a winner. I bet his woman is proud of him.
UPDATE: The police have captured two suspects.
