Sometimes not every great story has a great ending. Especially when the DEA is involved. A guy in South Carolina had been going viral this month for buying $540 worth of cookies so two Girl Scouts could get out of the cold.
Detric McGowan from Greenville, South Carolina earlier this month spent $540 to buy every single box of cookies from two Girl Scouts outside a grocery store, so they wouldn’t have to stand out in the cold. The story went viral with people from all over the country talking about what a great and generous man he was.
McGowan was arrested this week by Drug Enforcement Administration agents in connection with a 22-count indictment that includes charges of importing heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl from Mexico.
So now, he’s in jail waiting for his hearing. No word on what happened to the cookies.
