TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A volunteer Toledo Girl Scout troop cookie manager is being accused of stealing more than $10,000 of cookie money.

According to a product sales manager for Girl Scouts, Tarra Kopp, 32, was supposed to turn in $10,285 in cookie money that was raised during a cookie drive. However, she did not turn in the money and instead made up multiple excuses as to why she failed to make the deposits.

"It was a large amount and it's something that we don't take lightly," said Girl Scouts Spokesperson Shonna King. "And after several attempts to recoup that money and resolve the situation with the leader...we had to take the next appropriate steps."

Upon further investigation, police say Kopp also made cash withdraws and wrote checks from the troop's checking account between Dec. 17, 2012 and April 16, 2013 for a total of $11,986.

"Not only does this take money away from the troop, but it takes away money that they can use for their different activities, and it also takes away money that's going back in the community for girls," King said.

Kopp was arrested and booked into the Lucas County Jail for grand theft.
