A truck that was reported stolen was discovered this week filled with over 8,000kg (18,000 pounds) of toilet paper and various commercial paper products, amid the coronavirus panic-buying crisis.

Police began following the tractor-trailer after it was flagged for a motor vehicle violation, according to Newswpxi.com.

Upon discovery, cops understood the vehicle to be stolen and filled with paper products.

An investigation has been launched and no arrests have been made.

Throughout the world, worried shoppers have been fighting over toilet paper and other products amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Brits have taken panic buying to the next level as fighting and screaming were reported in supermarkets across the country following the coronavirus outbreak.

Last week, A 13-year-old girl was trampled on in a stampede after shoppers rushed into a supermarket to grab toilet roll.
