Athens-Clarke police investigating toothpick heist
Athens-Clarke police are trying to track down thieves who stole nearly 400,000 toothpicks from a local toothpick manufacturer.
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.
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.
