Police: Man Wanted to Trade Vodka for Cookies


A rather unusual attempt at bartering with a group of Girl Scouts landed a man in the Carter County Jail.

 "He was trying to trade vodka for a box of Girl Scout cookies," Ardmore Police Captain Keith Ingle told KTOK.

 Forty-five-year-old Jerry Swanson was arrested over the weekend, after approaching the girls at a shopping center.

 Ingle said Swanson was NOT in possession of any vodka. 

 No one was hurt. Swanson is facing a charge of public intoxication.
