Florida man facing felony charges for stealing toilet paper

Police in Florida recently arrested a man who is said to have taken a pack of toilet paper valued at one dollar from his neighbor's truck. This individual is now facing felony charges, which can result in hefty consequences if he is convicted. Thankfully, the accused has the right to defend himself with the assistance of legal counsel.

According to reports, the alleged incident occurred Tuesday, March 10, in the Clearwater area. Someone called police, claiming to have seen the accused -- a 25-year-old male -- break into a truck and take a six-pack of toilet paper. Police found this young man not far from the vehicle with a roll supposedly in his front pocket. He was promptly taken into custody.

The accused is now facing a felony burglary charge for which the penalties, if convicted, may include incarceration and fines. Bond was set in his case at $5,000. It is unclear if he is still in custody or if his bond has been paid.

With everything that is going on in the world today, toilet paper has become a highly sought after item. It is being stolen from store shelves and public bathrooms. Clearly, this is not something the state of Florida is going to treat lightly. Those facing felony charges for allegedly stealing this product, or anything else for that matter, will likely be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. With the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney, one's felony charges may be dismissed or, at least, reduced.
