Ellisville Police in search of library thief

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - The Ellisville Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a woman who allegedly stole from the library.

On Wednesday April 29, an unidentified woman walked into the Ellisville Public Library and asked where the movies were located. After several minutes of browsing, the woman went to the back of the library and came back up front with a book.

She laid it on the counter and told the librarian that she had to go get her friend's library card out of the vehicle parked outside.

As the woman exited the building, the security tags set the alarm off. The librarian went outside and confronted the woman at which time the woman stated she didn't have anything. She then told the driver of the vehicle to hurry up and leave.

The vehicle drove off and the librarian went back into the library to review the security video. It was discovered that she had taken three movies which included: Anna Belle, Sweet November and The Hangover.

Anyone with information on the identity of this woman are asked to contact the Ellisville Police Department at 601-477-9252 or Jones County Crime Stoppers at 601-428-7867.
