A man was arrested in Virginia for stealing $22,000 of toilet paper. He was tracked down by the GPS fleet tracking system installed in the truck.

“The trailer had a GPS tracker on it and when the trailer began moving it started and tracked it to the 2100 block of Washington Street, to the Fair Trade Supermarket,” said Sgt. Tommy Young, spokesman for Petersburg police. “Whoever stole it took it back and parked it in a different parking space and that’s how they found out.”

The owner of the Fair Trade Supermarket allowed Petersburg police to look around the store Thursday and found no trace of the stolen toilet tissue inside. Officers spotted a truck, about half the size of a tractor-trailer, parked outside the store.

“We talked to the owner of the car dealership next door who said the truck belong to the store owner,” said Young. “We got a search warrant for the vehicle, popped the lock and found the stolen goods inside.”
