Monday afternoon, Hesston Police Chief Doug Schroeder said he came across what could be a nationally-connected college textbook theft ring off of a traffic stop.

On Tuesday afternoon, Schroeder said he “just dropped off the paperwork” recommending burglary charges be filed against Barrington A. Barnes. 

“Inside the car - we haven’t even counted them all yet - I’d estimate 200-plus college text books.  Some new, some used, some still in their original wrappers unopened. At least two of the text books we were able to trace back to Hesston College - where this individual was just at - and were reported stolen,” said Schroeder.

Schroeder said some of the text books retailed in the $200 to $300 range.
