Man bought $540 in cookies so Girl Scouts could escape cold

Man bought $540 in cookies so Girl Scouts could escape cold

Shortly after his initial purchase, the man returned and told the girls to pack up everything they had.

She shared a picture of the man smiling with two of the Girl Scouts but said he had not given his name.

Greenville is about 140 miles (225 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta.

McGowan, 46, faces charges relating to manufacturing heroin and fentanyl pills.

Detric McGowan stands charged by the Drug Enforcement Agency with conspiracy, drug trafficking, cash smuggling, possession with intent to distribute heroin, and various other charges surrounding an investigation ongoing since September 2018.

A DEA spokesman said McGowan's arrest is completely unrelated to the cookie purchase. "Gave the girls $40, told them to keep the change", Dillard posted Friday night on Facebook. "We all were shocked", she said.




"This man purchased 7 packs of cookies".

In total, the man spent $540 on Girl Scout cookies.

Dillard, whose 8-year-old daughter is a member of the troop, was with the girls as they participated in the annual, beloved cookie sale outside a local supermarket.

"As a troop dad who knows many cold days at cookie booths, I have to say, this guy is a HERO!"

Most people will go the extra mile just to score a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies. Kayla Dillard said in the post that the man told the girls he wanted to buy everything so they could get out of the cold.

"What an incredible soul".
