ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A thief in New Hampshire apparently had a craving for cash, not cookies.

Rochester police say they are looking for a man who stole a cash box from Girl Scouts selling cookies outside a local drug store.

Police say the theft occurred Saturday evening during a cookie sales event outside Walgreen’s on South Main Street.

WMUR-TV reports that a man wearing a black winter hat and New England Patriots jacket swiped the cash box and dashed into a car with New Jersey license plates and two other people inside.

Police say it’s unclear how much money was stolen.

Anyone with information about the case should call Rochester police at 603-335-6500.
