American Hero Buys $540 in Girl Scout Cookies

Adjust Comment Print

A man who gained viral fame over the weekend for buying $540 worth of Girl Scout cookies was arrested Tuesday by agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). That's when a man who'd already purchased seven boxes returned to clean them out. She says it was around 34-degrees in Greenville, South Carolina, when the good Samaritan arrived.

Greenville is about 140 miles (225 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta.

He is accused of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute heroin, cocaine and fentanyl. McGowan allegedly tried to import drugs from Mexico.

A DEA spokesman said McGowan's arrest is completely unrelated to the cookie purchase. "We stood there in shock for a little while".

The troop sold about 221 packages of cookies that night. "He came back to the table and said, 'Pack up all of your cookies".

Kayla Dillard, one of the leaders of Troop 1574, revealed the man's kindness on Facebook, calling him an "amazing soul".

We had no reason to believe that this man was anything other than one of our valuable customers that is helping Girl Scouts power awesome experiences through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

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

By Monday, the photo of the man was shared thousands of times.

Dillard, whose 8-year-old daughter is a member of the troop, was with the girls as they participated in the annual, beloved cookie sale outside a local supermarket.
