A STACK of 150 bales of municipal toilet rolls were confiscated from two foreign nationals who are the alleged owners of an Umgeni Road supermarket where the stolen toilet rolls were being sold along with expired food items.
Spokesperson for the Metro Police, Parboo Sewpersad said the two Ethiopian men were arrested during a routine patrol yesterday afternoon.
“They were not cooperating with us to let us know where they got the toilet rolls from,” he said.
