SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Formal charges have been filed against two people accused of stealing cookie money earlier this month from a Girl Scout troop outside a Taylorsville grocery store.

Charges filed Monday show 24-year-old Steven Andrew Kvenvold and 24-year-old Kayla Marie Long each face one felony theft count after the incident March 16.

Police say members of Troop 2532 were selling cookies at a stand outside a Taylorsville Wal-Mart when a man approached them. Witnesses say he acted like he was going to buy cookies but instead stole an envelope of cash and fled in a car driven by a woman.

Long, who’s accused of driving the getaway car, told police Kvenvold gave her some of the $1,400 cash, and kept the rest for himself.
