Possibly inspired by cookie-loving law enforcement officers in Ravenna, OH, this note was posted on Jan. 18 on the South Orange Police Department Facebook page:
The South Orange Police Department wants to make our community aware of a highly addictive substance that is about to hit the streets. These items go by a variety of names like “Thin Mints”, “S’mores” and “Lemonades” just to name a few. These items are distributed by strong, smart, fearless young women who will lure you in with their story and get you hooked. We know many people think, “I will just get one box.” But one turns into two and two turns into five and the next thing you know you are hiding “Thin Mints” in the freezer.
We want you to know we are here for you. We have set up a disposal location for these “cookies” at the police department. Contact Sgt. Acevedo or just drop them off 24/7 and we will properly dispose of them for you. 😉👮♀️ 🍪 Shout out to Apex Police Department for putting us up to speed on this epidemic. #girlscoutsrock
