COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) - Officials at a Middle Tennessee library are on the lookout for a serial book bandit.
Maury County Library Assistant Director Adam Southern told The Daily Herald in Columbia that he thought the first stolen book earlier this month was a random act - until another one disappeared and then a third. In all three cases, the book jacket was left behind, but the book was nowhere to be found.
Library employees say they've had people check out books and not return them before, but this is the first time they've had a thief with a signature style.
Southern says he's puzzled over the motivation because it's easy to get a library card and check out the books for free.
