Police Charge Man with Toilet Paper Theft
Nathaniel Junior Sollars reportedly told police he was "sorry for having the items."
An Annapolis man captured with packages of toilet paper and paper towels has been charged with second-degree burglary and theft of less than $100, according to police.
An Annapolis officer said he was turning around his patrol car in the 200 block of President Street when he noticed a garage door was open. The door had been shut when he drove down the street minutes earlier, and he noticed a man walking down President Street in the direction of Tyler Avenue.
The officer stopped Nathaniel Junior Sollars, 51, of Annapolis, who was carrying two large packages—one being Bounty paper towels and the other being Members Mark toilet paper.
Sollars told the officer he was coming from "a friend's house," but the homeowner told police that she didn't give Sollars permission to enter her garage or take her paper products. She also told police that she was missing an antique wall clock.
Police were unable to locate the clock, but they did return the paper products.
