SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities say three Memphis men are accused of trying to steal a semi trailer loaded with toilet paper valued at $70,000.

KFVS-TV reports that the trio - ages 36, 42 and 51 years old - were arrested early Sunday after Sikeston and Missouri state police saw them drive off with the trailer from a Sikeston trucking company.

Officers at the time were monitoring the company after other thefts from it had been reported.

KFVS says the semi tractor used in Sunday’s alleged theft had been stolen that night from a trucking company in Memphis.

All of the men are charged with felony stealing.

Sikeston police say the investigation continues.
