TAMPA, Fla.- Girl Scout cookie season has begun but some troops may get behind on deliveries after a thief ran away with some wheels.

The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida says the wheels were stolen sometime over the weekend when the van was parked outside their office.

The organization is working with law enforcement to hopefully bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.

The following message was posted on the Girl Scout’s Facebook page:

Have you seen four van wheels? Because ours seem to have gone away over the weekend. On the bright side, we have eight brand new cinder blocks if anyone wants to trade those for new wheels. (We’ll even throw in some Thin Mints to sweeten the deal.) Want to help?
