Toilet Paper Bandit Collared!

May 10, 2010

Some stories are tailor-made for the Bathroom Reader:

The “toilet paper bandit” who allegedly robbed a Lincoln convenience store last month has made headlines in newspapers as far away as London and on the Drudge Report.

His fame may have been short-lived, however.

Joshua Nelson, 29, of 121 E St. was arrested Saturday evening for robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

On April 24, Nelson allegedly entered Kabredlo’s at 1445 S. 17th St. armed with a knife and demanded money.

The robber had toilet paper wrapped around his head to conceal his identity.

The problem with this guy is that he misunderstood when he was told he had 2-ply himself. Ba-dump. (No pun intended.)
