On Saturday, Feb. 2, at about 11:30 a.m., a Girl Scout walked up to John Dodrill's house in the 31000 block of Strawberry Tree Lane in Temecula and attempted to sell him cookies. He allegedly pointed a gun at the girl, whose father called the police. Authorities responded, relieved Dodrill of his weapon, and arrested him.
As the father of a cookie-selling Girl Scout, let me tell you: This is why you have to order your Thin Mints from forms at mom's or dad's work or hope to find a sales booth outside your grocery store.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Deputy Garcia of the Riverside County Sheriff's Southwest Station at 951-696-3000.
