A Girl Scout leader indicted in Kentucky for stealing $15,000 in Girl Scout cookies after picking them up on behalf of her troop but never delivering them to anyone seems to have disappeared.

Leah Ann Vick, 26, picked up the cookies from Pikeville, Kentucky, on Feb. 1 so they could be sold by her troop in the Wilderness Road Chapter, Kentucky State Police Trooper John Gabbard told the Appalachian News-Express, but the cookies were never distributed or paid for.

Attempts to contact Vick about the cookies were unsuccessful, and she has not been found at any of several addresses throughout Kentucky that were registered to her.

Girl Scout Troops do not typically pay for cookies until after they are sold, which means her troop is now responsible to pay for cookies it never received, UPI reported.

Vick was indicted in absentia on a charge of felony theft by unlawful taking, with items valued over $10,000 but under $1,000,000, according to the News-Express. Pike Commonwealth’s Attorney Rick Bartley told the Ledger that Gabbard has not been able to locate Vick or the cookies.

“She has never paid for any of them and anyone who has tried to contact her about them has not been able to contact her,” Bartley said. “It looks like she picked up the cookies, and, now, she and the cookies have disappeared.”

Some on Twitter were unphased by the strange story in light of how strange the news has been lately.

Others couldn’t imagine what she did with all of those cookies.
