Cops Warn About Addictive Substance On The Streets: Girl Scout Cookies

It's that time of the year again... Girl Scout cookies are back!

Whether it's Thin Mints, Samoas, or Tagalongs, everyone has their favorite cookie (and baker - go Little Brownie Baker!).

But one police department in North Carolina wanted to warn consumers of the upcoming threat.

"We wanted to make our community of a highly addictive substance that is about to hit the streets," the Apex Police Department shared on Facebook.

"These items go by a variety of names like "Thin Mints", "S'mores" and "Lemonades" just to name a few. These items are distributed by strong, smart, fearless young women who will lure you in with their story and get you hooked. We know many people think I will just get one box. But one turns into two and two turns into five and the next thing you know you are hiding "Thin Mints" in the freezer.
We want you to know we are here for you. We have set up a disposal location for these "cookies" at the police department. Just drop them off 24/7 and we will properly dispose of them for you. #girlscoutsareawesome #copslovecookies"

"Disposal location," eh? I see what you're up to....

If you want to support your local Girl Scouts and pick up a box (or two... or five) for yourself, check out their Cookie Finder tool to locate the nearest cookie sales to you!
