HOUSTON (March 13, 2014) Girl Scouts who were selling cookies at an H-E-B store in Katy are credited with helping nab a shoplifter who was caught with $2,000 worth of stolen merchandise.
The girls and their mothers noticed a man wheeling a cart out of the H-E-B filled with items that weren’t bagged Wednesday.
Girl Scout Hailey Matthews says the man appeared to be stealing a lot of stuff.
The girls and their mothers watched the man push the cart filled with wine, groceries and small appliances to a vehicle, and then reported him to an H-E-B employee.
Store service director Denise Villarreal called police, who arrested the man.
Villarreal also thanked the girls for their vigilance.
Chastain Cox of Katy was arrested on a theft charge, Capt. Bryon Woytek said Thursday.
