LOS ANGELES (NEXSTAR) – Southern California officers searching a stolen SUV found 192 rolls of toilet paper, according to a Beverly Hills Police Dept. social media post Tuesday.
The coronavirus pandemic has prompted panic-buyers to empty shelves of bathroom tissue nationwide.
It’s not yet clear if the toilet paper, which appears to have been made by Imperial – a company that supplies office buildings and other large facilities – was stolen or not. Police arrested the driver on unrelated charges, an official told the Los Angeles Times.
“Gives ‘They saw me rollin’ … ‘ a new meaning,” Beverly Hills police joked on Twitter.
