Carlsbad police recover 2,000 library books, DVDs

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD, Calif. (AP) — Carlsbad police say they have recovered thousands of library books and DVDs at the home of a 44-year-old woman who was arrested for investigation of receiving stolen property.

San Diego County sheriff's records show Maria Nater of Vista was booked into the Vista jail Tuesday night.

A police statement says detectives searched Nater's home after Carlsbad library officials reported a significant loss of books between March and July and suspicious activity by Nater.

About 2,000 items were seized.

Police spokeswoman Jodee Sasway told the North County Times that most of the items were books about cooking, crafts and animals and belonged to the Carlsbad and San Diego County libraries.
