 Here's a fun story about conscientious art thieves ...

Instead of an art thief, he preferred to be thought of as an art collector with a radical acquisition style.

... and book thieves.

Alois Pichler, a Catholic priest from Germany stationed in Saint Petersburg, Russia, modified his winter jacket with a special inside sack and took more than 4,000 books from the Russian Imperial Library, from 1869 to 1871, before he was finally caught and exiled to Siberia for life.
