Viral Girl Scout Cookie Buyer Arrested

A South Carolina man who went viral after he bought every single box of cookies from a Girl Scout troop in order to get them out of the cold, is now going to jail.

Detric McGowan was called “an amazing soul” after he handed the girls $540 and told them, “Pack up all of your cookies. I’m taking them all so y’all can get out of this cold.” A photo he took with the girls went viral and police recognized him as an alleged drug dealer.

The arrest was the culmination of a long-running investigation and also netted 10 other arrests.

Perhaps the guy knew the cops were hot on his tail so he figured he’d perform a good deed in the hope that a judge will take it easier on him.
