More Theft News (But a Happy Ending This Time)

MTI reports that eight rare books (worth approximately $8,000) which were stolen from a library in Klastor pod Znievom, Slovakia last December have been recovered in a Bupadest bookshop. "The suspect, a young man, returned to the library in January to steal another two books where he was arrested. An investigation is currently under way. Hungarian police received information through Interpol in early January that the books had been sold in Hungary, said Csaba Mihaly, head of the national bureau of investigation's special cases department."

The Bupadest dealer claimed not to know the books were stolen. They will be returned to Slovakia today, the report notes.
