Bowie police are searching for two men who stole money from Girl Scouts selling cookies outside an area store.

According to authorities, a man approached the scouts outside of a Wal-Mart on Oct. 28. He inquired about the cost of the cookies, then grabbed the cash box and ran.

A woman who witnessed the incident tried to chase the thief, but stopped when another man said he would catch him. Police said that a surveillance video shows the thief and the man who claimed he would catch him together.

There was about $200 in the scouts’ cash box.
