(The AEGIS Alliance) – GUILFORD COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA – Sheriff’s deputies followed a stolen diesel rig to a North Carolina warehouse and found it was hauling an amount of toilet paper in the thousands of pounds.

The tractor-trailer was driving just east of Greensboro in Whitsett on the I-40 and it caught the attention of officers, according to a news release by the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. The officers took pursuit and followed the big rig.

The GCSO said the driver was in violation of a North Carolina Vehicle law, which prompted them to track the vehicle not far off of the highway and into a nearby warehouse.

After the GCSO investigated, they discovered the 53-foot diesel rig had been stolen and was used to transport “nearly 18,000 pounds of commercial bathroom paper products.”

The press release said the driver was not placed under arrest while there is an ongoing investigation into the incident.

There are currently toilet paper shortages in stores in the United States due to coronavirus concerns, and retailers are having a tough time trying to restock before shoppers overwhelm the supply.

“Toilet paper has become the ultimate symbol of the panic buying,” CNN said in regards to the toilet paper shortage.

There are health experts who are recommending to stock up on household supplies such as toilet paper, but they do not suggest people to panic buy or hoard it.

However, suppliers of toilet paper say they aren’t worried.

The American Forest & Paper Association released a statement this past Monday that said the industry, “is working diligently to respond to the spike in demand for tissue products.”

“Rest assured, tissue products continue to be produced and shipped — just as they are 52 weeks each year as part of a global market,” the AF&PA statement said.
