Police in Athens are trying to figure out who stole nearly $3,000-worth of toothpicks from the manufacturer.

Police tell the Athens Banner-Herald reports that someone took six cases from Armond's Manufacturing Company Inc. about two weeks ago, and another seven cases went missing last weekend.

Each case contains 288 packages of 100 toothpicks. That brings the total number of stolen toothpicks to 374,400 with a value of about $2,808.

Police say there were no signs of forced entry. The owner believes a current employee or a former employee with a key might be responsible.

Two employees told the owner they saw an unknown man selling containers of Armond toothpicks at a flea market last weekend.
