Thieves Steal Over 160 Rare Books in Major Heist

The Fine Books Blog: In the early morning hours of January 30, a gang of thieves, in a carefully coordinated scheme, broke into a warehouse near London’s Heathrow airport and made off with over £2 million in rare books. The books, belonging to three different rare book dealers, were being shipped to the United States for the 50th Annual California International Antiquarian Book Fair this past weekend.

Wasn't me.

Speculation is that is was theft-to-order.
