LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- University of Louisville Police say they've apprehended a thief who stole a textbook about the importance of ethical living.

According to an arrest report, 25-year-old Terry J. Davis walked into the Barnes & Noble college bookstore on S. Floyd St., near the University of Louisville campus, and stole a book titled, "Resolving Ethical Issues."

Police say he then left that bookstore and went to a local Gray's College Bookstore, where he attempted to sell the book back.

But by that time, the book had been reported stolen, and bookstore employees were quick to react.

Police were called, and it was soon discovered that Davis was captured on surveillance video -- at both bookstores.

Davis was arrested at the Barnes & Noble location and charged with theft by unlawful taking.
