Police Fine Girl Scout $400 for Selling Cookies on Her Grandparents' Driveway

Police have fined a Wyoming Girl Scout $400 for ‘not having permission’ to sell cookies on her grandparent’s driveway.

A code enforcement officer asked Emma McCarroll, 13, and her mom if they had the landowner’s permission to sell from a driveway in the city’s Pine Avenue area.

However, Fairbanks McCarroll didn’t answer the officer’s question as the spot was on her parents’ driveway.

Nonetheless, the officer took photographs of the girl’s ales activity between March 13 and 15 to prove that Emma McCarroll had set up the stand.

“I personally don’t think she ever understood that I was related to the Fairbanks, my parents who own the driveway,” Fairbanks McCarroll told the paper.

Pinedale Mayor Matt Murdock said the mother was told to move and had refused to do so.

“Sometimes I just think that government can be unreasonable,” Emma McCarroll said.

“It wasn’t reasonable to be fined $400 for selling cookies in front of my grandparent’s property.”

The Daily Mail reported:

Fairbanks McCarroll was given a $100 fine for parking on the sidewalk, a $150 fine for unlawful obstruction and another $150 fine for a municipal code that said there needs to be at least five feet of unobstructed passage on the sidewalk.

Emma, who has been a Girl Scout since she was six years old, was aiming to sell 1,200 boxes of cookies so she could receive a $350 credit for summer camp.

Fairbanks McCarroll said, ‘She did not identify herself as Code Enforcement, she did not say what I was doing was illegal, she didn’t say she would or even could write me a ticket, she didn’t even say I couldn’t sell there anymore. All she said really was you shouldn’t block the sidewalk.’

When the code enforcement officer told her the Fairbanks probably would not like her blocking their property, Fairbanks McCarroll said:

“I responded with ‘the Fairbanks are my parents and they don’t care.’ She then said ‘okay well I just recommend you don’t block the sidewalk’ and left.”
