The man accused of stealing a shipment of Girl Scout cookies from a Spartanburg County warehouse last month is in jail, again.

This time, 37-year-old Christopher Morton of Woodruff is accused of stealing an enclosed trailer back in October.

Officials say it contained leather motorcycle clothing, helmets and other items.

In the Girl Scout cookie case, a judge set bail at $10,000.  So we called the solicitor's office to find out if they're doing anything to keep Morton behind bars this time.

They say they'll ask a judge to revoke his bond during the next court hearing.  That's something they say they do every time they identify someone as a repeat offender.

Deputies in Spartanburg County say an arrest has been made in a Girl Scout cookie heist that happened last week.

Christopher Maurice Morton, 37, is accused of stealing around 5,400 boxes of cookies that were being kept at a moving and storage company. When confronted about the theft, Morton confessed.

Investigators say Morton worked at Carey Moving and Storage as a truck driver, and has been fired as a result of his arrest.

Deputies in Greenville County say the cookies, valued at nearly $19,000, were found behind an abandoned business on Haywood Road earlier this week.

Morton, of Woodruff, is charged with breach of trust. He is being held at the Spartanburg County jail on a $10,000 bond.
