Workers at the Marshall County Courthouse in Iowa had been noticing the faster than usual disappearance of toilet paper. Suzanne Marie Butts was caught red-handed when an employee saw her taking three rolls of two-ply from a storage closet.
Butts faces up to three years in prison for robbing the courthouse. To add insult to injury, the police chief was not able to discuss the charges with the media without laughing.
Butts has prior theft convictions, which is why she faces such a steep sentence. The police chief didn't know why she was stealing TP from the courthouse, but added that she does not work there.
