: "FLORENCE, Ky. -- A man accused of borrowing nearly $20,000 worth of books, CDs and DVDs from Tri-state libraries and selling them to flea markets has been arrested, police said.
The Boone County Sheriff's Office said it arrested Robert White, 29, after he allegedly borrowed more than $600 worth of materials from the Boone County Public Library and sold them at the Richwood Flea Market in Walton, Ky., and Peddlers Mall in Cincinnati.
White was charged with theft by failure to make required disposition, the sheriff's office said.
Detective Carl Dover said White also sold material from libraries in Hamilton and Perry counties in Ohio and Kenton, Campbell, Pendleton, Jessamine, Madison, Scott, Woodford, Franklin, and Fayette counties in Kentucky.
White used his real name when applying for a library card but provided a fictitious address, Dover said."
