"Man gets book thrown at him for library theft"
"Library fine speaks volumes"
But hey, here's that rare bird - and I mean rare - a real rara avis, a guy who identifies himself in the theft process, and it caught up to him. All the EM tape in the world would not have stopped him.
....and now he's been weeded from society's stacks!
"Denver Public Library last year estimated its losses at $35,000, while Douglas County reported that Pilaar had $11,000 worth of overdue materials, mostly pricey coffee-table books and DVDs"
