A little cold weather wasn’t going to keep Girl Scout Troop 1574 from selling cookies on a near-freezing night in South Carolina recently. The girls were set up outside a supermarket in Greenville when temperatures were around 34-degrees, but it’s Girl Scout Cookie season, so they kept selling. But a generous stranger felt bad for the girls and bought out every box they had to help get them out of the cold sooner.
Kayla Dillard, the “cookie manager” for the Troop, says a man first bought seven boxes of cookies and then came back a few minutes later and told them, “Pack up all of your cookies. I’m taking them all so y’all can get out of this cold.” He dropped $540 on Girl Scout Cookies and bought what would have probably taken another day and a half to sell, Dillard says.
The big-hearted mystery buyer didn’t give his name, but the Girl Scout Troop is thankful for his support. “That man was just a very kind, sincere, humble man who loves children,” Dillard says.
Well...It turns out his name was Detric McGowan, and he was wanted by the DEA. They saw this story, and got busted.
He's being accused of importing heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl, and he's now facing 22 charges for drug trafficking, cash smuggling, and more.
At least he got his Samoas..
