A South Carolina man has confessed to stealing thousands of dollars worth of Girl Scout cookies from a storage business at which he worked, the Spartanburg Herald-Journal reports.
The man, 37-year-old Christopher Maurice Morton of Woodruff, S.C., unloaded 450 cases of Thin Mint and shortbread cookies, then stashed them behind an abandoned business nearby.
Only 352 cases were recovered by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.
The heist—valued at $18,900—was reported to police on February 26, according to the Herald-Journal, and Morton confessed when confronted by police on Wednesday.
Morton's motive and the fate of the 98 missing cases are not immediately clear.
Individual boxes of Girl Scout cookies go for $3.50 in South Carolina, according to a website operated by the state's mountains to midlands regional Girl Scouts council.
