Toilet Paper Robbery - it used to be Gold!?

Coronavirus: Police make three arrests after finding stolen toilet roll in van.
'grinning
Police have arrested three people after stolen toilet paper was discovered in a van amid the coronavirus pandemic. Essex Police's Operational Support Group stopped the vehicle after receiving a tip-off.

When they opened the back of the van they found several bundles of toilet roll and a microwave. Toilet paper has been hard to find in supermarkets during the COVID-19 outbreak because customers have been hoarding them.

Essex OSG tweeted pictures of the inside of the van, adding: "Police officers always get a massive sense of satisfaction when we catch burglars... however we never expected to find this stolen loot in the boot.

“Stolen items recovered and 3 arrested all within an hour of it being reported."

Boris Johnson will be speaking to supermarket bosses about efforts to keep supplies flowing and how to overcome the panic buying that is gripping the UK.

Shelves have been stripped of essential items, such as toilet rolls, hand sanitiser, paracetamol, meat, fruit and vegetables as shoppers ignore pleas not to stockpile. It has led to supermarkets having to bring in limits on the amount of some items sold, with golden shopping hours introduced to help the elderly and NHS and care workers.

Bethany Marshall, PhD., a psychotherapist in Los Angeles, tells Yahoo Lifestyle the toilet paper phenomenon can be explained by the theory of social contagion -- what the American Psychological Association (APA) calls “the spread of behaviors, attitudes, and affect through crowds and other types of social aggregates from one member to another.”

Hoarding toilet paper amid the coronavirus: Why are people doing it?

People are crowding grocery stores to stockpile food and supplies during the coronavirus pandemic that’s infected 11,000 people in the United States. But one item remains bizarrely elusive: toilet paper.

Although the White House said "...It is unnecessary for the American public to hoard daily essentials” and the National Grocers Association told ABC News that products like toilet paper “may be more limited in terms of availability but are flowing through the supply chain," both brick-and-mortar and online retailers are routinely cleaned out of the product.

The demand has forced stores into capping purchases at a certain number (with employees supervising the chaos) and restaurants like The Beacon Tap in Chicago, which pivoted to curbside take-out and delivery, to now offer toilet paper as a customer incentive. Police in Newport, Ore., have even scolded residents who call 911 to report toilet paper shortages. “It’s hard to believe that we even have to post this,” read a Facebook post by the department. Meanwhile, sales of bidets, which cleanse with sprayed water, are reportedly increasing.
