Thief rips off 288 pages from Scottish Catholic Archives

A man posing as a student was caught stealing pages from archives in London. He admitted that he stole them from the Catholic Church in Edinburgh as well.

The documents were taken from the Scottish Catholic Archives (SCA), which houses many valuable records dealing with administrative, financial and legal matters as far back as the early 12th century. Archivists have now tightened security at the facility.
