An intoxicated Burton man who tried to report that someone had stolen money from his home became irate when authorities could not get him his money, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff's Office report.
The man's surly reply: He told the deputy who had handed him a case report that the deputy should use it as toilet paper instead.
The man called the Sheriff's Office at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, claiming someone had stolen $750 in cash from a padlocked closet in his Winsor Road home, the report said. The man couldn't tell the deputy whether the closet was locked.
The man told the deputy he believed a friend had stolen it, but became irate and uncooperative when questioned further. However, the man's roommate said he wasn't robbed, according to the report.
The roommate told the deputy the man had a history of accusing people of taking his money, and the woman the man accused of stealing it said he had a history of forgetting where he had hidden his money.
After the deputy gave the man a piece of paper with the case information, the man again became agitated, throwing the paper back at him and telling him in an expletive-laden rant to use it as toilet paper.
No suspects have been identified in the theft.
