This is just AWFUL!
A man named David Betancort, a.k.a. 2014's frontrunner for meanest meanie who ever did live, has been arrested for allegedly committing a crime so heart-wrenchingly horrific that it pains our soul to write about!!!
The 21-year-old Southern California resident stands accused of stealing cash from a group of cookie-selling Girl Scouts! Apparently the dude just straight up took the tip jar from the cookie-selling stand outside of a supermarket last weekend and tried to drive off!!!
But, wait, IT GETS WORSE!!!
We know what you're thinking — how could it? We're talking about a real life cookie monster who allegedly stole about $40 from from young girls!
Well, as it turns out, the tips David stands accused of swiping weren't even for the Girl Scouts!!! They tips were part of a very important project that was adorably titled Operation Thin Mint — where the Scouts raise money to buy cookies to send to our troops overseas!
Stealing hard-earned tips from Girl Scouts and from our men and women in uniform?
Ugh! We don't usually root for meanies to stub their toe on the way into the courtroom, but sometimes exceptions have to be made!!
Thankfully a scout leader had the presence of mind to write down the alleged thief's license plate, so cops were able to track him down and throw some handcuffs on him!
After being told about the cookie cash thief's arrest, one Girl Scout reportedly said:
“Don’t mess with Girl Scouts and don’t mess with soldiers."
Aww! You tell 'em, sister!
