On Saturday afternoon in Severn, a 12-year-old and 13-year-old girl were selling cookies from a wagon. When they stepped away for a moment, 18-year-old Gabriel Smith grabbed the wagon, and took off down the street.

Smith then dropped the cookies and jumped into a car being driven by a 17-year-old accomplice, but neighbors weren’t going to let him get away with the cookie caper.

After hearing the girls shout that their cookies were being stolen, neighbors climbed into a car and followed the getaway car. After calling police, they were able to track down the car at a gas station in Odenton. The two suspects were then arrested.

The girls were reportedly safe, but the condition of the cookies remains unknown.
