No men with ski masks, no police sirens and no chase, this theft was anything but action-packed. A librarian made the proud of his employer $ 1.3 million by stealing printer cartridges from the library and sold them online. He spent his wealth on video games and accessories, among other things.

The mere fact that the theft took place in a library is so completely anti-climactic to the amount stolen that it is just absurd. Randall Whited also stole some absolutely boring loot in the form of printer cartridges. Over the course of 12 years, so the 72 page report of the Austin authorities, Whited got the library's need for printer cartridges worth the money actual $ 150,000 raised to $ 1.5 millionwithout anyone noticing.
