Seems someone in Maine was hungry.

The Skowhegan Lions Club’s fairgrounds booth was pillaged overnight Saturday, the group told the Morning Sentinel, with about 120 whoopie pies stolen, a pile of cookies pilfered and a half-gallon of iced tea taken.

“We’re a volunteer organization,” John Youney, a director of the service club, told the Morning Sentinel. “We raise money for the public and spend it back on the public. It’s just kind of frustrating to find out someone has just willy nilly trashed your place.”

The group has operated in Skowhegan since 1935.

The damage from the theft amounted to more than $1,000, Youney said. He also said the thief can confess and pay off the crime by assisting the group with its work.

The whoopie pies are the group’s “big moneymaker,” Youney told CBS affiliate WBZ-TV.
