ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - An Anniston woman has been jailed on $10,000 bond after being charged with stealing more than 200 books from the local public library.
Anniston police investigator Kyle Price says 42-year-old Regina Smith was arrested Wednesday on felony theft charges. She is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 14.
Price said library officials reported in October that employees had observed a woman stealing two books from library shelves.
He says he eventually discovered that over the past couple of years, Smith had stolen 222 books worth $5,431.
