Camp initiation takes strange twist

Posted: Sunday, July 28, 2002

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) -- Police say they've solved the mystery of a cross-dressing Girl Scout cookie salesperson.

Someone complained last week that a young man in a big, blond wig and red pleated skirt was going door-to-door taking orders for Girl Scout cookies.

Police say they learned the seller, who resembled country star Dolly Parton, was taking part in a summer camp initiation.

''It was kids goofing off,'' said Detective Sgt. Mike Ludlow.

He said a camp counselor called police to tell them it was all a prank and apologized. The counselor also promised they've seen the last of door-to-door Dolly.
