Chronicles of theft and resolution

From Harper’s Weekly Review, a wide range of stolen objects:

A bronze top hat went missing from a statue of Abraham Lincoln in Louisville, Kentucky, a marble slab that had been stolen from the ruins of Pompeii was found on display in a Belgian home, and two men on trial for robbing a Kohl’s store in Parker, Colorado asked for a lesser charge because the items they stole were on sale. A copy of Beowulf was returned to a Pennsylvania library after 54 years, and a Nancy Drew novel was returned to a Wisconsin library after 20 years; as both libraries had gone fine-free in the intervening decades, no charges were incurred.
