Police report almost 400,000 toothpicks were stolen from Armond's Manufacturing Company.
Six cases of toothpicks went missing from Armond’s Manufacturing Company Inc., 95 Trade St., about two weeks ago, and another seven cases disappeared last weekend, according to police.This case is especially puzzling since no one in Athens has enough teeth to need one.
Each case contained 288 packages of 100 toothpicks, which brings the total number of purloined picks to 374,400.
The plastic toothpicks have a total value of $2,808, police said.
No, no, no. I'm terribly sorry. As a southerner myself, I apologize for the gratuitous redneck stereotype.
