    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.
