An Update on the Brubaker Case

On MAPS-L, Rob Lopresti reports that he just learned that map thief James Brubaker, who had been sentenced to 30 months’ imprisonment for a series of book and map thefts from more than 100 libraries, but especially Western Washington University, was released from prison in May. “He is on parole and probation and I believe he is not allowed to leave the state of Montana.” In other news, WWU’s newspaper, The Western Front, interviewed Lopresti (who you may remember was instrumental in nabbing the guy) about the case last week.
