Thief stuffed Burger King’s bathroom pipes in pants, Lincoln Police say

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A toilet paper thief escalated and stole the pipes behind the toilet, Lincoln Police say.

Police are still looking for the woman, who stole the pipes on Dec. 12 at the Burger King near 60th Street and Havelock Avenue.

Security video showed the woman going into the bathroom and leaving with a “strange bulge” in her pants, according to police.

After she left, the pipes between the toilet and the wall were missing.

Police say the woman has also been suspected of stealing toilet paper from the restaurant on previous occasions.

In another case, officers are looking for the owners of a red pickup involved in a theft from a bar near 33rd and Superior Streets.

On Dec. 27, the truck was seen driving off with the wall panels of a walk-in cooler.

Then on Jan. 17, two people driving a different truck showed up at the bar and stole the replacement cooler, which was being assembled outside.

Police estimate the loss at around $45,000.

Anyone with information on either case is asked to call Lincoln Police at 402-441-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 402-475-3600.
