James R. Shinn, the book-theft suspect accused of stealing valuable books worth up to $500,000 from college and university libraries (AL, June 1981, p. 303), has again been apprehended after he jumped bail last summer (AL, July/ August, p. 399). Spotted by two Muhlenberg College librarians (pictured below), Shinn was arrested December 16 by FBI agents in Allentown and held in federal detention in lieu of $100,000 bail.

C&RL Newshas learned that in January a storage operator in Bethlehem recognized Shinn as one of his customers and notified the local FBI. Agents then located 16 footlockers and 7 suitcases in a storage room that Shinn had rented, all of them containing a "mother lode" of books belonging to many university libraries including the Universities of Illinois and Michigan. All this and other material recovered from Shinn will be edited and annotated by William Moffett (Oberlin College) and made available by the end of February through the OCLC interlibrary loan format or for $5 from Oberlin College, Oberlin, OH 44074.
