TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A woman accused of stealing from the Girl Scouts appears in court Wednesday.
Jennifer Hardison, 35, is accused of selling 300 boxes of Girl Scouts cookies but never turning in the money.
Hardison allegedly stole $1,233 from the Girl Scouts.
After many attempts to recoup the money from Hardison,the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio said they were forced to press charges.
The organization promised that the incident would not impact the girl scout who sold the cookies or her troop who benefit from the sales.
"The girls that maybe their family is involved in this at all, they are not affected. They still earn their rewards," said Katie Maskey of the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio.
Hardison faced a judge after being charged with theft. She did not enter a plea deal to the charges and was given a lawyer.She is currently out of jail on bond.
Five other people are also facing theft charges for committing the same crime.
