DELTONA, Fla. (AP) – Authorities are searching for a man they say grabbed a box of money from a table where a 12-year-old girl was selling Girl Scout cookies outside a central Florida Wal-Mart.

Volusia County Sheriff’s spokesman Andrew Gant says the man ran to the parking lot Sunday afternoon and got into the passenger seat of a waiting car.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports surveillance video from the store showed the man approaching the store with a woman and small child before the theft.

Gant says the group walked back to the car and waited a few minutes before the man returned and took the money.

The sheriff’s office didn’t say how much money was stolen. An investigation continues.
