Book Theft Leads to Car Chase

Very impressive that the Syracuse police will chase down someone who absconds with a book from the University's library, though I am glad they didn't collide with any motorists on their chase! (Too bad it wasn't caught on tape a la OJ.) But why didn't they tell us what book it was that was so important to this guy and why? Or does this fall under "privacy"?
