Fly on the Wall 1518 

The Thin Mint

"Tagalongs, Samoas, Thin Mints – you name it, and Julie Tolbert is selling it."

With those words, WMC reporter Sasha Jones launched into a hardboiled story about a cold-blooded criminal taking goodies and cash from Memphis Girl Scouts.

According to Tolbert, who heads up sales for local troops 10339 and 10007, one of her girls gave cookies and change to an unidentified customer in exchange for a fake $100 bill.

While the Fly-team often dings TV news for over-the-top crime reporting, anybody who'd pull that scam deserves a swift kick in the Do-si-dos.

Listed!

Speaking of scams and swift kicks, Memphis and West Memphis were ranked Nos. 9 and 10, respectively, on a new list of America's 100 most dangerous cities, according to the website and analytics database Neighborhoodscout.com.

Based on data related to violent crime, we beat Baltimore but were behind that infamous hotbed of vice, No.-1-ranked Monroe, Louisiana.

Dammit, Gannett

Hat tip to Twitter user @jmay for offering Fly on the Wall yet another opportunity to use this headline.
