Lafayette police arrested 31-year-old Lori Ann Gaylor, of Lafayette, on May 21 on charges of theft over $500 after reports that the Girl Scout ‘Cookie Mother’ of Troop 2137 allegedly stole money obtained by the troop through cookie sales.
According to a police report filed at the Macon County Sheriffs Department, Gaylor was put in charge of collecting all money from the troop’s cookie sales, but when the cookie money was to be turned it, Gaylor came up empty handed.
Commissioners failed to pass a motion to institute Phases III and IV of the creek debris clean-up plan as presented by Phillip Dixon, District Conservationist, at May’s meeting of the Committee of the Whole.
Phase III, as explained by Dixon, would add eight additional sites to the clean-up plan. Phase IV would expand the clean-up area from 50’ to 200’ on each site and would include two new sites. The projected cost to the county would be $75,000, according to Dixon.
