Police: Man stole books, DVDs from libraries to sell online

Chicago Sun Times – “A janitor wrote the book on how to get arrested, authorities say. Now he’s charged with stealing thousands of books and DVDs from the Lisle Library and selling them on the Internet. The case started in April, when a librarian found a notebook, apparently left accidentally by the alleged thief, James F. Jackson, 43, of Glen Ellyn. Handwritten in the notebook was a list of hundreds of books, said Katharine Seelig, acting director of the Lisle Library District. Some of the books listed in the notebook were missing from the library, Seelig soon found out. They had not been checked out, but they could not be found on the shelves.”
