Judge's son accused of stealing rare books from Bloomsburg U.

Associated Press

BLOOMSBURG, Pa. - A judge's son was jailed for allegedly stealing thousands
of dollars worth of rare books from Bloomsburg University's library.

Timothy A. Naus, 22, was on parole for stealing antiques and old furnishings
when his parole officer reported finding several stolen library books during
a visit at his home. Naus, the only son of Columbia-Montour President Judge
Scott W. Naus, was charged Thursday with library theft, theft, receiving
stolen property and criminal mischief and jailed on $25,000 bail.

Library workers reported finding security tags and back pages torn from
books late last month, just days after Timothy Naus was released from jail
for stealing from a Clarion County antiques store while on parole.

Timothy Naus served a year in prison for stealing antiques from shops in
Bloomsburg and Mahoning Township in 2001 and 2002.
