(KPRC)  A Texas Girl Scout troop stopped shoplifters from getting away with several thousand of dollars in stolen goods.

The troop had set up a booth to sell their Girl Scout cookies at an HEB grocery store in Katy, when members said they noticed a suspicious man wheeling a cart out the store doors. 

Mary Mathews, whose daughter is a troop member, said the man's cart had loose items and nothing was placed in HEB plastic or paper bags. So the group kept the man in its sights. 

"He had pushed his cart back into the corner like he was hiding from us," said Mary Matthews.

"He was stealing a lot of stuff," said Girl Scout Hailey Matthews.
