“4-Year-Old’s Overdue Library Books Returned After Police Sent To Family’s House,” CBS Pittsburgh reports:
The case of the four overdue library books and the little girl who borrowed them is closed, thanks in part to local police who were sent to investigate the case.
Four-year-old Katelyn Jageman’s books were due back to the Freeport Area Library on Oct. 19, 2011. Until Thursday, they were still in her possession. Library officials said after several attempts to retrieve the books, the case was turned over to police, who made a courtesy call to the child’s home.
“It’s a rare incident, but it does occur,” said Donna Michael, President of the Freeport Area Library Board.
After phone calls and letters to the family, Michael admitted she alerted authorities and put the problem in their hands.
“I did turn the file over to the police department,” she said.
Here’s exclusive video of how the arrest went down:
