Police are calling it the "lowest form of crime possible."  They're looking for four suspects who stole a cash box from girl scouts selling cookies outside a Bowie Walmart.

The theft happened on October 28 outside the superstore on Crain Highway.  Police say the suspects worked as a team to steal the box, which had around $200 in it.

Police are determined to catch the criminals responsible.

"There is a general sense of outrage that someone would victimize these young girls," said Bowie Police Chief John Nesky.

One of the girl scouts told News4 the money was going towards charity, including a program that feeds the homeless.

Bowie police are accepting donations for the troop at 15901 Excalibur Road, Bowie, MD 20716. Checks can be made out to Girl Scout Troop 2310.
