407 boxes of Girl Scout cookies lifted in Lakeland

LAKELAND, Minn. (AP) -- Girl Scout cookies are hot items this time of year.

So hot, apparently, that someone swiped 407 boxes of the goodies from a Lakeland garage sometime Thursday.

With an average cost of $3.50 per box, the stolen goods have a street value over $1,400.

Washington County authorities are investigating today and seek the public's help in identifying the burglar or burglars.
