Girl Scout Dad Used Daughter’s $700 Girl Scout Cookie Money To Pay For Happy Ending At A Local Rub And Tug
An Oregon Girl Scout father staged a break-in of his house in order to steal $700 of his daughter’s girl scout cookie money. Brian David Couture pleaded guilty Monday to filing a false police report and staging the robbery. He admitted to stealing the money so he could pay for a $700 erotic massage.
Couture called 911 on March 6 reporting that an intruder had entered his home near Portland. When officers arrived they found Couture unresponsive and the house ransacked.
Police also discovered $700 missing from a jar containing the proceeds of his daughter’s Girl Scout cookie sales. Couture told police he had struggled with an intruder and was taken to the hospital.
Investigators from the Washington County DA’s Office investigators found blood around the home.
Yet, no suspects were found despite a search of the area. Police also began quickly noticing multiple inconsistencies in Couture’s story.
Neighbors say the report of the burglary sparked panic among local residents:
Brooke Gwin said:
There were cops from all over, dogs, the forensic team, they had crime scene tape up everywhere. We put sticks in all of our doors and I started setting the alarm during the day because I was afraid to be home by myself during the day.
Girl Scout Dad Confesses To Staging The Robbery
The DA’s office said Couture eventually admitted he had staged the robbery himself. Couture told police that he stole the money from to pay for an erotic massage. He also said he faked the robbery when he realized he couldn’t explain the missing funds.
As a result, Couture pleaded guilty on Monday to initiating a false police report.
The court ordered Couture to pay a $100 fine and given 80 hours of community service along with probation.
A Girl Scouts spokeswoman said in a statement to Fox 12 that Couture is the father of a Girl Scout. The spokesperson said there is about $740 is unaccounted for in cookie sales in connection with this case.
Couture now faces the bloodthirsty pursuit of the Girl Scouts. A spokesperson told Portland media:
At this time, Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington is following our normal procedure to collect on funds owed. The stewardship of Girl Scout troop funds is a top priority for our organization and that is our focus in this matter.
