A Newton man who didn’t return overdue books and CDs to the city’s public library for months landed in jail on a theft charge. He was charged with third-degree theft on Aug. 20 after he failed to return items worth $770, police said. He checked out 11 books and six CDs, including a box set, in January. He was charged after repeated efforts to get him to return the items.
