OWASSO, Okla. (KOKI) – Authorities in Owasso are searching for a cookie monster.

“I don’t know why would you steal cookies from a girl. Come on, it’s not right,” Cynthia Thetge said.

Cynthia Thetge’s daughter, Emily, is a Girl Scout.

While Emily has spent a lot of her time selling cookies to friends and family, a thief had their eye on the treats.

On Thursday night, Thetge says someone stole dozens of boxes of Girl Scout cookies from her vehicle.

“I looked out through my windshield and there’s a Thin Mint box, and that’s when I looked in the back of my Suburban and said, ‘Oh, all of the boxes are gone,” she said.

The thief with a sweet tooth stole six cases of cookies, with each case containing 12 boxes.

Thetge said the stolen treats are worth about $300.

“You’re not only messing with me, but now you’ve messed with my child and that’s really hurtful,” she said. “What’s your purpose? If you truly need something, come to my front door. I may be able to help you out.”

She says this isn’t the first time someone broke into her car, but this time, she says it went too far.

“Don’t steal from my child and don’t go through my stuff. That’s my stuff. That is mine. I’ve purchased it. I’ve worked hard for it,” she said. “Well, I hope you choke on them.”
