Police Charge Man with Toilet Paper Theft

Nathaniel Junior Sollars reportedly told police he was "sorry for having the items."

An Annapolis man captured with packages of toilet paper and paper towels has been charged with second-degree burglary and theft of less than $100, according to police.

An Annapolis officer said he was turning around his patrol car in the 200 block of President Street when he noticed a garage door was open. The door had been shut when he drove down the street minutes earlier, and he noticed a man walking down President Street in the direction of Tyler Avenue.

The officer stopped Nathaniel Junior Sollars, 51, of Annapolis, who was carrying two large packages—one being Bounty paper towels and the other being Members Mark toilet paper.

Sollars told the officer he was coming from "a friend's house," but the homeowner told police that she didn't give Sollars permission to enter her garage or take her paper products. She also told police that she was missing an antique wall clock.

Police were unable to locate the clock, but they did return the paper products.

Sollars told police he was "sorry for having the items."

Oh the comments I could make. . .

Seriously? We arrest and charge a man for taking toilet paper and paper towels, less than $100 value . Isn't anyone questioning this man may be mentally ill? Why don't we spend our time helping this man rather than prosecuting him. Over half our prisons are filled with mentally ill individuals and you can be assured they are not getting proper treatment for any mental illness. I like to laugh at a good joke like any one else, but this is no laughing matter. Suppose this was your father, brother, friend, or coworker, would you be as quick to laugh at his crime? i didnt think so. On another note, why isn't this police officer focused on more important crimes?

You must be an Obama supporter, Sara. Romney people know what this man needs. JAIL!!

Sara I agree with you. We do not know the man who did this or his story. He needs help IF he did this. Innocent until proven guilty. Rick, really ?????? Why don't you read Les Miserables.

The homeowner is lucky he didnt go into her house. He did a crime and should be punished for it. He could have done a lot more and maybe he has in the past and this is the first time he got caught.
