Alleged brazen toilet paper thief arrested by police

One of two men wanted over the alleged brazen theft of toilet paper from supermarkets in Sydney has been arrested.

NSW police confirmed a 30-year-old man was taken into custody following a vehicle stop on Vaughan Street in Lidcombe just before 2pm today.

He’s been taken to Auburn Police Station, where he is assisting officers with investigations.


Police released photos of two men earlier this week after they allegedly broke into restricted storage areas at supermarkets in Granville, Auburn, Bass Hill and Lidcombe last Sunday.

The pair targeted toilet paper and allegedly stole multiple packs from two of the stores, however left empty handed from the other two.

Whilst at the Auburn supermarket, one of the men allegedly threatened an employee with a knife.

Investigations are continuing.
