Phillips, who has a daughter in the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, ordered $2,400 in Girl Scout cookies in May 2014, but only paid for just over $1,300, according to Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck.

She was indicted nearly a year later on one count of theft of over $1,000 – a fifth‐degree felony.

The case is one of four pending cases involving felony theft of Girl Scout Cookie money.
