Troy police on patrol took to social media to uncover information about toilet paper police found strewn across John R Road, north of Wattles Road, near Athens High School, at approximately 7 a.m. March 30. 

According to Troy Police Department postings on Twitter and Facebook, the toilet paper was wet and dirty from being in the roadway, and it is unusable. 

"This is a real incident that happened today,” the Facebook post states. 

Sgt. Meghan Lehman confirmed, via email, that “it looks like a whole Kirkland brand pack - 42 - rolls - from Costco.” 

With regard to charges, “An unsecured load on a vehicle is a civil infraction. If it was intentional, littering is a misdemeanor,” Lehman said. 

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (248) 524-3477.
