Did you hear about the guy who bought 121 boxes of Girl Scout cookies for $540 so the two little girls selling them wouldn’t have to stand out in the rain? A total hero, right?

Well, his name is Detric McGowan and he was just arrested by the DEA for “allegedly trafficking heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl smuggled from Mexico”:

According to media reports, the viral photo did not lead to his arrest and the DEA had been investigating him for 6 months:


According to the indictment, McGowan was charged with:

Conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute controlled substances.
Conspiracy to import controlled substances.
Conspiracy to commit bulk cash smuggling ($1,004,665).
Interstate travel and transportation in aid of drug trafficking business.
Possession with intent to distribute and distribution of heroin.
Maintaining a drug-involved premise.
Conspiracy to structure transactions to evade reporting requirement.
Three counts of unlawful use of a communication facility.

This is why we can’t have nice things.
