East Village Books Store Owner Nabs NYPL Book Thief

Earlier this week, the owner of East Village Books captured a man who unsuccessfully tried to sell stolen New York Public Library books.

Donald Davis, owner of East Village Books, admitted that he had been fooled by Hansen in the past, but was able to stop him this time. Davis reportedly wrestled Hansen to the floor and called the police to catch the alleged thief.

I was so angry that he was stealing from the library … The library is just a very important piece of our community.’” (Via The Wall Street Journal).
