Oregon man foiled in attempt to steal 108 rolls of white gold (toilet paper), sheriff’s officials say

As cases in the coronavirus pandemic march steadily upward, the fear of running out of toilet paper has returned and some are turning to nefarious means to procure that flushable bounty.

Exhibit A is what Walla Walla County sheriff’s officials are calling “The Great Toilet Paper Caper of 2020,″ in which they said an Oregon man was thwarted in his attempt to make off with a large amount of TP.

According to a Facebook post from the county Sheriff’s Office, “a watchful citizen interrupted a residential burglary in progress” and called 911.

At first deputies couldn’t catch the alleged paper thief. But, authorities said, they later found the suspect in his disabled pickup. Authorities said they thought the truck was disabled due to poor maintenance.

“The toilet paper in his vehicle,” officials said in the post, “was in the same unique packaging that deputies had seen earlier in the residence.”

Germany angers Turkey with attempt to police Libya arms embargo

BERLIN/ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkey protested to Germany and the EU on Monday after German forces belonging to an EU military mission boarded and tried to search a Turkish cargo ship that they suspected of taking weapons to Libya illegally.

Soldiers from the frigate Hamburg, part of an EU mission enforcing a U.N. arms embargo, boarded the Roseline A overnight but withdrew after Turkey raised objections with the EU mission, which had ordered the search, the German Defence Ministry said.

Turkey released footage showing armed men in military uniform marshalling sailors with their hands on their heads on the bridge of what it said was the Roseline A, at sea southwest of the Greek Peloponnese peninsula.

The incident comes at a time of friction between Turkey and the European Union. The EU’s foreign policy chief has said ties are reaching a “watershed moment” over Turkish oil prospecting in waters claimed by

YEREVAN (Reuters) – Armenia prevented an assassination attempt on Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and the seizure of power by a group of former officials, the National Security Service (NSS) said on Saturday.

Pashinyan had come under pressure with thousands of demonstrators protesting since Tuesday and demanding he resign over a ceasefire that secured territorial advances for Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh after six weeks of fighting.

The NSS said its former head Artur Vanetsyan, the former head of the Republican Party parliamentary faction Vahram Baghdasaryan and war volunteer Ashot Minasyan were under arrest.

“The suspects were planning to illegally usurp power by murdering the prime minister and there were already potential candidates being discussed to replace him,” the NSS said in a statement.

Pashinyan said earlier this week

The 43-year-old former star of WE tv’s Braxton Family Values revealed on The Tamron Hall Show on Wednesday, Oct. 28, that she had contemplated suicide long before she acted on it.

Spanish lawmakers squash far-right’s attempt to oust PM

MADRID (AP) — Spanish lawmakers on Thursday overwhelmingly rejected a no-confidence motion called by the far-right Vox party against Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez and his left-wing coalition over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The motion was rejected by 298 votes and backed only by the 52 lawmakers of Vox, which last year became the third-largest force in the 350-seat parliament.

Spain has reported 1 million confirmed infections — the highest number in Western Europe — and at least 34,000 deaths from COVID-19, although experts say the number is much higher since many cases were missed because of testing shortages and other problems.

Opposition leader Pablo Casado announced earlier Thursday that the 88 lawmakers of his conservative Popular Party (PP) would vote against Vox’s motion, and lambasted the far-right party for “wasting everybody’s time” with the debate as the country grapples with a resurgence of the virus.

“This motion is
