In a statement, a Walmart spokesman said customers and employees gave donations to the Girl Scouts after the theft.
Juli Spann has been volunteering with Girl Scouts for nearly two decades.
The deputy’s report said video from Walmart confirms an assault on the volunteer and the theft of the money box.
There was a struggle for the money box and the thief punched and kicked Spann before getting into the Jeep to leave, according to Spann.
Girl Scouts in the area will be selling cookies until March 19, extending the initial cutoff date of Sunday because several booths closed over the weekend due to weather.
None of the Girl Scouts were injured.
Police did not say what led them to identify Mullen as the suspect or how they tracked him down.
Erik Mullen was taken into custody Sunday night at 9:45 p.m.
He was booked into jail on charges including petty theft and possession of narcotics.
