Knife-wielding men who stole hundreds of toilet rolls during panic-buying shortages in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic in Hong Kong were jailed for more than three years on Thursday.
The three were each sentenced to 40 months in prison over the armed robbery in February last year in which some 600 toilet rolls were taken, Mingpao newspaper reported.
During the robbery, the three men admitted to using a knife to threaten a delivery driver outside a major supermarket chain.
They made off with 50 packets of toilet paper worth around HK$1,700 but were soon tracked down by police. （AFP）
