Rare book's theft a symptom of 'Mormonia'

On Tuesday, federal marshals barreled into a condominium in Herndon, Va., and found a most unusual book: a leather-bound first edition of the Book of Mormon.

They also found the man who allegedly pilfered the prized tome - worth between $50,000 and $100,000 - from a suburban Phoenix antique book shop, authorities said.
