ARCADIA, CA (AP) - Investigators say the Southern California leader of a Girl Scouts troop had her hand in the cookie jar.

Arcadia police Capt. Larry Goodman says 30-year-old Ana Isabel Juarez has been arrested and booked for investigation of felony grand theft. The investigation is continuing and Juarez is due in court on May 8.

The Pasadena Star-News (http://bit.ly/IkMnBq ) says more than $4,000 in profits from cookie sales was discovered missing from the account of the South El Monte-El Monte-based troop.

Another $2,000 in troop money is also missing.

Investigators say Juarez took the money by using a Girl Scouts debit card tied to the troop's cookie account during a six-month period ending in March.
