FBI recovers rare first-edition of the Book of Mormon

By Carol Cratty, CNN

(CNN)–Law enforcement agents have recovered a rare first-edition copy of the Book of Mormon that was reported stolen from a Mesa, Arizona, bookstore in late May.

The FBI announced Thursday the religious book, first published in 1830 in New York, was located two days ago in Herndon, Virginia, and a suspect was arrested.

The Book of Mormon is considered scripture by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints, on par with the Bible.

Jay Michael Linford, 48, is awaiting extradition to Arizona, where he faces charges of theft and trafficking in stolen property.

According to a court affidavit, the owner of the Arizona bookstore - identified only as Witness 1 - reported the theft to the Mesa Police Department on May 28.

The bookstore owner told police she had been in business with Linford, who brokered the sale of pages of the rare book on her behalf.

The woman said their business relationship had ended but Linford knew she kept the first-edition in a locked fireproof box in a file cabinet and had access to it around the time she believes it was stolen. According to the affidavit, Witness 1 said Linford had a key to the box and to the location where the book could be found.

The bookstore owner told police once she realized the book was missing - along with its fireproof box - she contacted Linford and he "denied having the book or having any knowledge of its location."

The affidavit says the bookstore owner also reached out to people who buy and sell rare books to alert them that the book had been stolen.

A Texas man identified as Witness 2 replied that he recently had bought two pages of a Book of Mormon from Linford for $7,500 and that Linford said the book was owned by a family in North Carolina. The pages were shipped to the Texas man, who later determined they did come from the Arizona woman's first-edition.

The FBI's Art Theft unit and other agents investigated and found the book after locating the suspect staying with an acquaintance in Virginia, the affidavit said.

The FBI would not estimate how much this edition of the Book of Mormon might be worth. The Arizona bookstore owner placed the value at $100,000. However, the Mesa Police Department consulted experts who gave an estimate of $40,000 because pages had been taken out of the book and sold.

    The book of Mormon is a history of people in the Central America's.
    The Mormon religion does not consider it to be equal to the Bible.

      It is comparable to the Bible. It's a poorly written attempt to explain the world through the eyes of people too ignorant to understand the world around them. Rational readers understand this to be a work of FICTION, much like War and Peace or The Great Gatsby. Irrational readers immediately get down on their knees and worship a fake deity, and then lock their doors after reading Frankenstein.

      Kat – Though I'm not a fan of religion, your statement about religion being the leading cause of war is historically FALSE. Most wars boil down to a combination of three things – land, wealth(resources), and/or power. At best, religion is used as an excuse to get the masses to support the war effort.

      For proof – let's take a look at the most recent (last few hundred years)

      Iraq/Afghanistan – Oil (Resources) / War on Terror (Power/Security?)
      Vietnam – Power (Prevent spread of communism)
      Korean War – See one above
      Egypt/Israel – Power, Land (Remember Jews had been there thousands of years – war only after they became an independent state – never was about religion)
      WWII – Power, Resources, Land (Hitler played both sides – secular/religious when it suited him)
      WWI – Power (Mostly interlacing treaties brought in a majority of the key players)
      Napoleonic Wars – Power, Land
      American Revolution – Freedom (Power)
      French and Indian War – Land
      Ok.. I could go on and on...
      even the Crusaders were really about a land grab, religion was just an excuse to get the masses to support it.

      No doubt!!! I mean, most religious beliefs are pretty kooky (talking snakes included), but Mormonism takes the cake. It's right up there with Scientology. I want to know - does Romney believe he and his wife will rule a planet of their own after they die? I bet they do! If he wasn't running for president, it'd be a laugh riot. As it is, it's just sad.

      June 14, 2012 at 5:00 pm |
    • escher7

      A serious reply:
      According to Latter Day Saint belief, the golden plates (also called the gold plates or in some 19th-century literature, the golden Bible)[1] are the source from which Joseph Smith, Jr. said he translated the Book of Mormon, a sacred text of the faith. Some witnesses described the plates as weighing from 30 to 60 pounds (14 to 27 kg),[2] being golden or brassy in color, and being composed of thin metallic pages engraved on both sides and bound with one or more rings.
      Smith said he found the plates on September 22, 1823 at a hill near his home in Manchester, New York after an angel directed him to a buried stone box. Smith said the angel at first prevented him from taking the plates, but instructed him to return to the same location in a year. In September, 1827, on his fourth annual attempt to retrieve the plates, Smith returned home with a heavy object wrapped in a frock, which he then put in a box. Though he allowed others to heft the box, he said that the angel had forbidden him to show the plates to anyone until they had been translated from their original "reformed Egyptian" language. Smith dictated a translation using a seer stone in the bottom of a hat, which he placed over his face to view the words written within the stone.[3] Smith published the translation in 1830 as the Book of Mormon.

      And just how scary is it that a person that is trying to become president was told that and actually went 'hmm you know what, I can totally buy that and will follow that religion'?

    This may be a bit off topic, but I was wondering if Mitt Romney becomes President, if he will take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon?

    June 14, 2012 at 4:45 pm |
    • ME II

      Taking the presidential oath of office in the US does not require a 'holy' book, it's optional for the person taking the oath and not even mentioned in the Coosti.tution. Not that I don't think Mormonism is just Christianity with extra silliness added, but I would hope that Romney would use the Book of Mormon, if he wins, or even better, nothing at all.

      I think you are misinformed – the Book of Mormon was a first hand account of (psycho) Joseph Smith, who was directed by an angel to golden plates with the Word of God inscribed on them – but only he could translate them.

      That was the start of the cult of Mormonism.

      @crownme – except the New Testament of the Bible was written by numerous people who witnessed the Son of God being born, crucified, and rising from the dead.

      The Book of Mormon was the account of 1 delusional man who thought only he could read the Word of God on tablets left to him by an angel in America.

      June 14, 2012 at 4:59 pm |
    • Bet

      @ Randy
      You said "except the New Testament of the Bible was written by numerous people who witnessed the Son of God being born, crucified, and rising from the dead."

      First of all, you don't know who wrote the bible. You've been told that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote it, but there's no historical evidence that they wrote a da.mn thing. The earliest scrap of bible manuscript that's been verified was written in 125 AD and it's the size of a business card. Since then, it's been revised over and over, some "gospels" were thrown out, and others kept, and the translations suited the purposes of the rich white men who had the revisions done.

      Second, according to the bible, MML&J did not "witness" Jesus being born, they weren't present in the manger. Only one of them stuck around for the crucifixion, and none of them saw him rising from the dead. They supposedly "saw" him afterwards.

      It's interesting that there are no corroborating witnesses to the many "miracles" Jesus was supposed to have done. If I had been at one of his catered picnics, I'd probably have mentioned it to a few of my friends. The Roman government probably would have investigated someone who could raise people from the dead and heal lepers. They surely would have checked into the criminal that was crucified and then reported to be walking around three days later.

    • ballgame

      Crown Me, I think youre confusing the entire bible with the New Testament. You say that there were 300 religions around before the bible? What does that even mean? Are you familiar with the Old Testament? Im not sure that you understand that the BIBLE addresses the worship of gods other than Yahweh, thousands of years before the birth of Christ. Of course those practices are in no way shape or form condoned, but to my point, Its no secret that there were other gods that were worshipped, and its clearly stated in the BIBLE. So when you say there were 300 religions around before the bible Im not sure what you're trying to say. If you are pointing out that there were groups of people that worshipped gods other than The Jewish God, before the birth of Christ( New Testament times and probably what youre referring to as the bible), then you are absolutely correct and anyone whose actually studied the bible would agree. Page one of the bible starts with the creation of Earth, so i dont know how you can have established religion before that.

  20. kindness

    This is my experience... Thank you.

    MY personal testimony.
    A thought to consider without an ego response

    Accept Jesus christ as your lord and saviour. You never know how soon is too late. Transcend the worldly illusion of enslavement.
    The world denounces truth....

    Accepting Jesus Christ (for me) resulted in something like seeng a new colour. You will see it .....but will not be able to clearly explain it to anyone else..... Its meant to be that way to transend any selfism within you.

    Also... much the world arranges "surrounding dark matter into something to be debated" in such a way that protects/inflates the ego.

    The key is be present and transcend our own desire to physically see evidence. We don't know anyways by defending our own perception of dark matter.

    Currently.... most of us are constructing our own path that suits our sin lifestyle. Were all sinners. Knowing that we are is often an issue. But both christians and non are sinners.

    We don't like to Let go and let god. We want control to some degree. This is what Jesus asks us to do. "Follow me".
    It's the hardest thing to do... but is done by letting the truth of scripture lead you (redemptive revelation)... as I said .

    Try reading corinthians and see if it makes sense to you. Try it without a pre conceived notion of it being a fairy tale.
    See the truth...
    do we do what it says in todays society... is it relevant... so many have not recently read and only hinge their philosophy on what they have heard from som other person...which may have been full of arogance pride or vanity..

    Look closely at the economy ponzi, look at how society idolizes Lust , greed , envy, sloth, pride of life, desire for knowledge, desire for power, desire for revencge,gluttony with food etc .

    Trancsend the temporal world.

    Just think if you can find any truth you can take with you ....in any of these things. When you die your riches go to someone who will spend away your life..... You will be forgotten.... history will repeat iteslf.... the greatest minds knowledge fade or are eventually plagerzed..... your good deeds will be forgotten and only give you a fleeting temporary reward . your learned teachings are forgotten or mutated..... your gold is transfered back to the rullers that rule you through deception. Your grave will grow over . This is truth .

    Trancsend your egoism and free yourself from this dominion of satan. Understand you are a sinner and part of the collective problem of this worldly matrix... Repent.... Repent means knowing (to change) The Holy spirit (within) will convict you beyond what you think you can do by yourself. Grace is given to those who renounce the world. That are" in" the world but not "of " the world.

    Evidence follows faith. Faith does not follow evidence..... Faith above reason in Jesus Christ.

    Faith comes by Reading or Hearing the word of god from the bible . Ask Jesus in faith for dicernment and start reading the new testament... You will be shocked when you lay down your preconceived notions and ....see and hear truth ... see how christ sets an example ... feel the truth....

    Read Ecclesiastes. Read corinthians.

    You cant trancend your own egoism by adapting a world philosophy to suit your needs. Seek the truth in Christ.

    Sell all your cleverness and purchase true bewilderment. You don't get what you want ....you get what you are in christ.

    I promise this has been the truth for me. In Jesus christ .

    Think of what you really have to lose. ...your ego?

    Break the Matrix of illusion that holds your senses captive.

    once you do . you too will have the wisdom of God that comes only through the Holy Spirit. Saved By grace through Faith. Just like seeing a new colour.... can't explain it to a transient caught in the matrix of worldly deception.
    You will also see how the world suppresses this information and distorts it

    You're all smart people . I tell the truth. Its hard to think out of the box when earthly thinking is the box.
    I'ts a personal free experience you can do it free anytime . Don't wait till you are about to die.. START PUTTING YOUR TREASURES WHERE THEY REALLY MATTER >
    Its awsome and It's just between you and Jesus

    my testimony

    Romans 10:9

    "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

      Confess with my mouth?? What if I want to confess on the internet by typing? Doesn't count I guess. How the hell else would one confess?

      A lot of people talk about peace, sounds like this person found an internal peace. Without stealing someone else's property, having to lie about not having it, or spending $$$ to obtain it. Nothing wrong with that!

      I think they are calling spam Dan because I think the same person pretty much cut and pastes that same thing to every religious article on CNN

      "As far as I can see, there was no spam here. Just a frank expression of his views. Just because you disagree doesn't make him a spammer. He commented once, albeit lengthy, yet only once"

      Obviously you have missed the other 234,567,835,634,572,334,568 times this idiot has posted the exact same thing on the message board.

      It's spam because:
      1) it is a cut and paste that always gets posted and more importantly
      2) no one is here to be converted to any religion via message board post....

      Interesting points. Renunciation: Being a reader of the Bhagavad Gita, renunciation would normally occur after self realization. Self realization being, the significant relationship that each and every individual shares with the universe, also good for a save yourself backup plan incase of emergencies, some may know it already. Some may never realize it. Hence, old souls, or young souls. Full self realization is more obvious, in solitude, and in control of self sense desires, and material desires. After Jesus ascended, what did he own? Not too much. A bed sheet, sandals, and a walking stick. And based upon pictures, the walking stick was optional. Minimal material, ultimately creates a more peaceful life for the spiritual self. A spiritual life, with minimal material, also creates sustainability.
      Anyway, I think the obvious to anyone one of the great historical books is that, actions should be carried out always in a mode of goodness. Be indifferent to everything, and always keep searching for the truth. It's also my opinion, that our sole purpose here on earth is to find spiritual truth, similar to any one of the ascended masters, that history has to show for.

      Anyway, i just enjoy engaging in Spiritual conversation.
      When in doubt, save yourself.

      It is all about spiritual truth and the peace that comes with it. We are so much more than what we see on this earth on this time. We are temporally blinded by the 5 senses that we do not see past that. Although I don't worship the bible as God like most people tend to do, I have learned lots form it as well as many other spiritual books. It is a great place to start your own spiritual journey.
