LOS ANGELES — Police found 192 rolls of toilet paper, a hot commodity as people isolate and self-quarantine amid the coronavirus, in a stolen SUV on Tuesday.
It was unclear if the toilet paper had been stolen.
“The driver was arrested for several charges — unrelated to the toilet paper,” Beverly Hills police Lt. Elizabeth Albanese told the Los Angeles Times.
The driver’s identity was not released. A gun was also recovered during the search of the vehicle, KTTV reported.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, people in communities across the country have panic purchased shelves-worth of toilet paper.
The department joked on social media about the arrest:
“Gives ‘They saw me rollin’...’ a whole new meaning.”
