$600 of toilet paper stolen at C-Mart

  • Follow Metro

More than $600 worth of toilet paper was stolen Thursday from two tractor-trailer trucks parked at the C-Mart on the 3400 block of Mike Padgett Highway.

Both thefts were discovered when the drivers arrived at a loading dock on the 1400 block of Lovers Lane and found a combined 36 cases of Scott toilet paper were missing, a report states.

The truck drivers told a deputy that the thefts must have happened while they were sleeping at the C-Mart.

Sounds like a fishy story to me. Two trucks had the same thing stolen at the same time while both were sleeping. Something does not smell right here( no pun intended)

I don't get why they stole

I don't get why they stole from two different trucks either, but there is room for speculation out the wazoo. And yep, halloween is right round the corner! Are thieves that desperate now, that they resort to stealing toilet tissue?? lol

If the trucks were parked

If the trucks were parked beside each other and there was more than one thief, this is possible. pommom38, stealing anything and then selling it at the flea market is nothing but profit. Collect enough non traceable items, set up a table at the flea market and you're good to go. Also as others have mentioned, Halloween is right around the corner.

Wait a sec, here. Doesn't it

Wait a sec, here. Doesn't it add up that 7000.00 worth of bedsheets was stolen from Crothall and now 600.00 worth of t.t.paper? Yes this town was in for a major toilet paper wrapping and the wrappers would have been disguised under the stolen bedsheets! It all makes sense to me now.

I dunno, between the sheets and now toilet paper, maybe they're trying to stock a hotel for free? Time's are tough after all!
ICL, I didn't think of that until you posted it. True, they sell everything at the flea market, be mindful if someone has an overload of toilet tissue available.

You'll know who stole it by

You'll know who stole it by the way they walk. Scott toilet paper is the hardest toilet paper made. I tried it one time and everyone in my family came out of the bathroom and asked what that was on the roll. If you want to get a rise out of someone, put a roll in the bathroom. We stick with Charmin. FYI
