Fraudulent borrowers cost libraries $10,000
Here\'s yet another story on
public library thefts. Detectives are investigating a
library theft ring whose members took at least $10,000
worth of materials from at least 16 libraries in several
OH counties over five months.
They used at least five fraudulent names to take out
About $10,000 worth of DVDs, CDs, videos and books.
Overdue notices sent to the fraudulent addresses were
returned by the postal service in December, and the
libraries then knew they had been ripped off.
It\'s so sad how often I see this now.
