Man Bought $540 in Girl Scout Cookies so Girls Could Escape Cold

A Girl Scout troop was selling cookies outside in near-freezing weather Friday in SC when a man approached their table and bought seven packs of the Girl Scout cookies.

McGowan faced a judge Tuesday afternoon, along with several others who were arrested in this operation.

A kind stranger bought $540 worth of cookies from a local Girl Scout troop so they could get out of the cold on Friday.

Detric Lee McGowan, 46, of Piedmont, South Carolina, was named in a 21-page indictment, along with others, for conspiracy to import and possess with intent to distribute heroin, cocaine and fentanyl.

Cookie manager Kayla Dillard told CNN the girls had been selling cookies for two hours before the man showed up.

"What an unbelievable soul", Dillard wrote.

The two sides reaffirmed their resolve to promote closer cooperation at global forums, the statement said. The identity of the deceased militants was being ascertained, they said.

He then came back to the table and told them to "pack up their cookies", and explained, "I'm taking them so y'all can get out of the cold".

Most people will go the extra mile just to score a few boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

The troop sold about 221 packages of cookies that night and Dillard says the number of packages the man, who didn't give his name, bought would have likely taken about another day and a half of efforts to sell.

But the US government said the man whose viral act of kindness launched a million "awws" from coast-to-coast on social media is actually a drug dealer and distributor.

"We stood there in shock for a little while", McGowan said.

He will have a bond hearing on Friday.
