A man faces charges after an unusual incident at a local library. 52-year-old Darrell Bess was taken into custody yesterday, naked, armed with knives and several pounds of stolen cheese.
Bess was ordered by a judge to stay away from the Main branch of the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Public Library in downtown Cincinnati because of prior thefts.
But police say Bess ignored that warning. He was found naked, bathing in the men's bathroom at the library on Wednesday. Police searched his bag and found two knives, two library CD's and 4 pounds of parmesan cheese which he allegedly stole from a local store.
