ALBANY, GA (WALB) -   That's what Albany Police are trying to find out.

Workers at the Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia store on Pine Avenue were closing up shop Friday. They had actually locked the door, when a man they didn't realize was inside the building, came to the door.

The startled workers let him out. Monday they discovered someone had gone through the cash register and stolen one hundred dollars.

The money from sales of cookies and scouting equipment pays for programs like summer camps.

"It does, it really takes away from the girls. And that's our mission. We build girls of courage, confidence, and character. And when the money's taken it takes away from the girls," said Business Mgr. Tiffany Stewart.

Workers couldn't give police a detailed description of that man they think stole the money. Police are still investigating the theft.
