The reported disappearance of some 1,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from a warehouse in south Forsyth was apparently the result of a miscalculation.
Forsyth County Sheriff’s Lt. Col. Gene Moss confirmed that a mistake in inventory had been made, which resulted in the recent report that about 87 cases were thought to have been stolen.
A volunteer for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta notified the sheriff’s office March 1 that the cookies were missing after a trucking company arrived to pick up a shipment at a warehouse on Samples Industrial Boulevard.
According to the report, the door to the building was locked with a deadbolt when the volunteer arrived that morning and there were no signs it had been forced open.
Moss said after a check of the warehouse’s inventory, it was discovered that the cases were not stolen after all.
The potential loss had been estimated at more than $3,650.
