Police Sent To Collect Overdue Books [VIDEO]

Almost everyone has had an overdue library book at some point. We check out the book, read it, get busy with life, and totally forget when it needs to be returned. Normally, it’s no big deal… Pay a fine and it’s all good.

But that’s not what happened to a 5-year-old girl in Charlton, Massachusetts.

According to CBS Boston Television, the library actually sent a police officer to the child’s home to retrieve the overdue books or pay the fines!

Her mother told the TV station that her daughter became very upset and scared with the police at the door. She says, “I closed my door, I looked at my daughter and she started crying.”

Sgt.  Dowd of the Charlton Police Department said, “Nobody wanted to, on this end to get involved in it. But the library contacted us, and the chief delegated, and apparently I was one of the low men on the totem pole.”
