I was traversing the Los Angeles Times during my morning coffee break and stumbled across this article from Matt Pearce.

The community rallied to reduce inventory and make up for the large outstanding credit line.

This article sheds light on a growing epidemic whereby warehouses of Girl Scout Cookies are being broken into and inventories stolen. Check out the pattern of here.
