Police in New Jersey have bought 250 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies from two sisters who were berated by a woman who said no one wanted what they were selling.

WABC-TV reports (http://7ny.tv/1Me16n4 ) 12-year-old Natalie Skolar and her 9-year-old sister, Angelina, were selling cookies door-to-door in Scotch Plains when one homeowner began cursing at them.

Angelina says the woman shouted that she didn't want to buy cookies before she slammed her door.

An employee of the Fanwood Police Department saw a Facebook post detailing the encounter and began passing around an order sheet for cookies. The police department says it bought 250 boxes from the sisters.
