Christopher Anspach Jail 10 Days, A five-year-old girl from Charlton, Mass. burst into tears after a local library sent Police Sergeant Dan Dowd to her house to retrieve the child’s two overdue library books, CBS Boston reported.
“I thought it was way overboard,” the girl’s mother, Shannon Benoit, said. “I closed my door, I looked at my daughter and she started crying.” According to the report, Shannon’s daughter thought Dowd was going to arrest her.
Sergeant Dowd told the station that, although long-overdue books are a misdemeanor, he didn’t want to go to the girl’s house.
“Nobody wanted to, on this end to get involved in it,” Sgt. Dowd told CBS Boston. “But the library contacted us, and the chief delegated, and apparently I was one of the low men on the totem pole.”
The Benoit’s books had been overdue for “several months,” but were quickly found and returned at the police officer’s request.
It turns out the little girl’s fears of being arrested weren’t completely unfounded.
Back in September, Christopher Anspach was sentenced to 10 days in jail for failing to return his overdue library books after several months and multiple overdue notices.
“After several attempts had been made to contact Anspach by phone and certified mail with no luck, Newton Library contacted the Newton City Attorney and Newton Police Dept,” a complaint obtained by The Smoking Gun stated.
