Published 11:23 am Tuesday, January 11, 2022

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has issued an alert to residents — in the spirit of fun and the service of a worthwhile cause — to be on the lookout for “addictive substances” that will soon be flooding the region and the state.

From past experience with these well-known “substances” deputies warned residents to watch out for the “Cookie Cartel” run by local girls who they say “try to lure you in with a good cause story and then you become addicted to these cookies.”

Deputies identified the addictive substances as  “Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Lemon-Ups, S’mores, Toffee-tastics and Adventurefuls.”
