Quick Takes

Paper chase

The Kaysville, Utah, police department put out a desperate plea on March 6 to local residents asking them to stop stealing rolls of toilet paper out of the police station bathroom. Visitors to the station have made complaints that the men’s room in the station lobby never has toilet paper available. “We have someone who is employed to actually stock that, and it shouldn’t be running out so quickly,” Officer Joshua Danielson told KSL. At the same time, a spike in consumer demand led to supermarkets running out of their stocks of toilet paper across the state. The same day the police department reported their toilet paper crisis on social media, a citizen donated a half-dozen rolls, telling officers, “You need this more than I do.”
