TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo police are investigating the alleged theft of thousands of dollars from the Girl Scouts.

In fact, Girl Scout leaders have filed criminal reports against several parents and volunteers who were responsible for collecting money.

The report says the people sold cookies, but then failed to turn in the money.

According to the report, one person still owes $4,000.

"Something should be done about it because the girls work very hard to earn all that money," said Girl Scout leader Amy Opdycke. "They like to go camping and doing other things with it and without that they can't."

Because of the missing money, leaders say the girls may have had to cancel some of the programs they chose and pick others.

Police have not yet filed charges in the case.
