MONTGOMERY COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – Police arrested a woman they said stole thousands of dollars worth of fundraising items from a Boy Scout group.

Boy Scout Troop 4 of Montgomery County was selling popcorn to raise money.

The popcorn was being kept in a trailer in a volunteer family's yard. Until Thursday morning, when the popcorn went missing.

Boy Scout Volunteer Chad Jones said, "As I came out to check on it, you know I just saw the grass and it just hit me. So I immediately went to call a sheriff's deputy who's actually a scout volunteer."

Thursday, Montgomery County deputies arrested Holly Marlowe and charged her with receiving stolen property.

Police said in her truck she had the popcorn that was taken from the family's yard.
