Stefanie Woods, convicted Girl Scout cookie thief, faces new charge in Broward County

The infamous "cookie monster" is in trouble again.

Stefanie Woods, 22, was arrested Thursday by North Lauderdale Police on a felony charge of violating her probation.

Woods drew national attention in 2008 when she and a friend stole $169 from a 9-year-old Girl Scout selling cookies outside a Winn-Dixie in suburban Boynton Beach.

Less than three weeks later Woods and the same friend were arrested after dining at a Denny's in western Lantana and then ditching. The two walked out on their $25.84 bill.

In 2009, Woods, her then-boyfriend and another man robbed a man of prescription drugs while armed with a gun in Palm Beach Gardens.

She pled guilty to kidnapping and robbery with a firearm charges in 2010.

Circuit Judge Amy Smith sentenced Woods to a year in jail, which she had already served.

She also was ordered into a Department of Corrections drug treatment center and then placed on two years of house arrest followed by probation.

Details of Woods' Thursday arrest were not immediately available.
