Teens Fined For Handing Out Cookies To Rural Neighbors

`Two Colorado teens now have reason to believe the saying, “No good deed goes unpunished.”

They’ve been fined almost $900 for baking and delivering cookies to their neighbors last summer.

Taylor Ostergaard, 17 and Lindsey Jo Zellitti, 18, dropped off cookies last July to about nine scattered rural homes south of Durango.

Several neighbors said they enjoyed the unexpected treats. But one woman became so terrified by the knocks on her door around 10:30 p.m. that she ended up in the hospital after suffering an anxiety attack.’
