Man who bought Girl Scouts' entire supply of cookies arrested

Girl Scout cookies: Man buys $540 worth of Girl Scout cookies from troop in South Carolina 2019 02 22

A Good Samaritan spent $540 at a Girl Scout cookie sale so that the freezing youngsters could pack up their stall and return to the warmth. According to the Facebook post, which has been deleted, McGowan stopped at the girls' cookie stand and bought seven boxes of cookies; he gave the girls $40 and told them to keep the change. "He came back to the table and said, 'Pack up all of your cookies". I'm taking them all so y'all can get out of this cold.

"We actually had to cancel some of our booth sales this weekend because we didn't have cookies to sell at the booth because he purchased them all", said Dillard.

Though the post has racked up over 13,000 likes and 9,300 shares, Dillard has yet to identify the mystery Good Samaritan, according to CNN. "What an incredible soul!" Hours later, the post said, McGowan returned and bought out the troop's entire haul of cookies.

A DEA spokesman said McGowan's arrest is completely unrelated to the cookie purchase.

McGowan gained national attention last weekend after a Facebook post of him smiling next to two Girl Scouts outside a sc grocery store was shared thousands of times.

Kayla Dillard, the "cookie manager" of Troop 1574, told CBS News they were shocked when McGowan told them pack up.

"That man was just a very kind, honest and humble man who loves children", Dillard told CBS.
