Rare Book Theft

In a smash-and-grab raid early Tuesday, a man stole two dozen antiquarian books from the shop window of a Prahran antiquarian book-seller. The books were valued at approximately $10,000 and included such items as a rare edition of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol and works by John Steinbeck and Sir Walter Scott. The alleged thief has been apprehended but now professes no knowledge of the whereabouts of the books. I have the same problem in my house.
