Library Director Foils Thief

When a thief grabbed and ran with a charity donation box Ann Arbor library director, Josie Parker, ran after him. He tripped in front of her dropping the box. All of the money, about $146, was recovered but Ms. Parker broke her leg.

The incident took place Sunday about 9:35 p.m. at the Borders store in the Arborland shopping area in east Ann Arbor. Parker was volunteering with a gift-wrapping program that benefits the book club. While Parker was wrapping gifts, a man in his 20s approached and stole the donation box, and Parker instinctively went after him.
