'Cookie cartel' warning: Police advise of 'highly addictive substances'
MADAWASKA, Maine (WISN) -
Police in Maine have put out a warning ahead of an annual winter tradition: Girl Scout cookie season.
"We have received reports that highly addictive substances will soon be circulating in our area," Madawaska police wrote on Facebook. "These substances go by the street names of Carmel deLites, Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, Thanks-A-Lot, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Shortbread and S'mores."
Police said the "cookie cartels" lure unsuspecting buyers into a good cause.
Continuing the joke, police said to drop off any and all cookies to the police department.
Girl Scout cookie sales support local Girl Scout troops. They can now be purchased online.
