Suspects In Rare Books Theft Released Until Trial

Anonymous Patron writes "A Short Blurb on that Transylvania University book theft incident from last month. The four suspects in the theft of rare books and manuscripts from Transylvania University have been released from jail pending their trial.

The items allegedly taken by the 20-year-old men included a first edition of Charles Darwin's "On the Origin of Species."

None of the men was required to post bail. Warren Lipka, Spencer Reinhard, Charles Allen and Eric Borsuk are accused of restraining a librarian at Transy and stealing the first-edition Darwin, a collection of 20 sketches by John James Audubon, a two-volume natural history called "Ortus Sanitatis or Garden of Health" and an illuminated manuscript from 1425."
