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.

    What about my first edition of "Dianetics" by L. Ron Hubbard?

    WHY ON EARTH ARE YOU BREAKING UP A RARE BOOK AND SELLING SINGLE PAGES? That is NOT how you treat an extremely scarce first edition. If the copy were missing many pages anyway, well, I might see why you would sell single leaves from it, but if it were intact to begin with, just sell it for a fortune to Mitt Romney or one of his wealthy Mormon friends.

    Here is a section of the Book of Mormon of WHY we have this book...
    3 And because my words shall hiss forth—many of the Gentiles shall say: A Bible! A Bible! We have got a Bible, and there cannot be any more Bible.

    4 But thus saith the Lord God: O fools, they shall have a Bible; and it shall proceed forth from the Jews, mine ancient covenant people. And what thank they the Jews for the Bible which they receive from them? Yea, what do the Gentiles mean? Do they remember the travails, and the labors, and the pains of the Jews, and their diligence unto me, in bringing forth salvation unto the Gentiles?

    5 O ye Gentiles, have ye remembered the Jews, mine ancient covenant people? Nay; but ye have cursed them, and have hated them, and have not sought to recover them. But behold, I will return all these things upon your own heads; for I the Lord have not forgotten my people.

    6 Thou fool, that shall say: A Bible, we have got a Bible, and we need no more Bible. Have ye obtained a Bible save it were by the Jews?

    7 Know ye not that there are more nations than one? Know ye not that I, the Lord your God, have created all men, and that I remember those who are upon the isles of the sea; and that I rule in the heavens above and in the earth beneath; and I bring forth my word unto the children of men, yea, even upon all the nations of the earth?

    8 Wherefore murmur ye, because that ye shall receive more of my word? Know ye not that the testimony of two nations is a witness unto you that I am God, that I remember one nation like unto another? Wherefore, I speak the same words unto one nation like unto another. And when the two nations shall run together the testimony of the two nations shall run together also.

    9 And I do this that I may prove unto many that I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; and that I speak forth my words according to mine own pleasure. And because that I have spoken one word ye need not suppose that I cannot speak another; for my work is not yet finished; neither shall it be until the end of man, neither from that time henceforth and forever.
    Do you really think a 14 year old boy by the name of Joesph Smith who wasn't even learned write statements like this? You try it...you won't even get close. Many of the most successful people are Mormons. Are you saying they lack intelligence but smart in business and other areas? Oh, you are saying they are being tricked and deceived. You think Mitt Romney is that dumb. Read the above scriptures again and think and pray about it.

      cursed is the christ that joeseph smith wrote about in the book of mormon,another testament of jesus christ–Cursed is the spirit from which guided the hand of joeseph smith. The religion of mormonism is a mental illness–It does not matter what age joeseph smith claimed he wrote that sickness and blasphemy-You say he was 14–fine-captain, i hope you break free of the chains that the evil one put you in

      Love the seventeenth century English in this nineteenth century "translation" of this "sacred" text...doesn't seem phoney or even derivative...not in the least. Read between the lines...it says h, o, a and x...as do the original "scriptures."

    • Captain Moroni

      Peter, you are sounding silly right now. I need to break free from the chains of the evil one? All of us that do good need to break the chains of the evil one? You are not making sense.

      Why are you judging me? Is that Christ-like? Maybe you should look in the mirror Peter and judge yourself. Try taking the "beam" out of your eye before you view others.

      June 15, 2012 at 12:52 am |
    • Will

      YBP, Joseph Smith was familiar with the seventeenth century version of the scriptures.....Of course he translated it using that type of language... This is not uncommon when doing translations. You translate into the form that the people are familiar with, which in this case was 17th century English. If you don't believe me, you should look at some of the translations of the very recently discovered dead sea scrolls. Very 17th century.

      The word "Bible" doesn't actually appear in the true Bible so, if the Book of mormon was written by an Israelite or transcribed by a prophet how he is using that word? it's just way unbelievable and crazy...

      June 15, 2012 at 2:27 am |
    • Will

      @ Charly: Your right, the word "Bible" is not found in the bible. It is a word of greek origin meaning books or collection of books. Once again, your failing to see the point. When translating, you do so in the language of those receiving the translation. Refer back to my last post.

    Even a guy like me, who flunked math repeatedly in high school, can figure out that if two pages sell for $7,500.00, then even an estimate of $100,000.00 is way off. If one page sells for 3,750.00, then you would only have to sell 27 pages to make $100,000.00. How many books only have 27 pages? The only ones I have ever seen that are that small are children's books. Depending on what language used, and the overall size of the book and text printed in it, a copy of the Book of Mormon could have as few as 500 pages or many as 1000 pages. 500 pages at 3,750.00 each comes to $1,875,000.00 and 1000 pages comes to $3,750,000.00. Assuming each page is worth the same as the two sold to the guy in Texas. If that is the case, then those experts the Mesa Police Department consulted certainly were not Math experts.

      The book has no historical value–it is only worth something to a mormon –maybe the lds church will pay a million for it if they have too.

      June 15, 2012 at 12:20 am |
    • 66Biker

      Oh, please... No historical value? Are you really that naive? Why do you think someone would pay $7,500.00 for two pages of a book? He certainly wasn't trying to get religion from reading it.

      If you have an unbroken rare vase, it could be worth a million dollars. Break a few bits off, and it's worth less than half that. The whole, undamaged rarity is what commands the premium, not the value per shard.

    I can't believe that actually persons in the USA believe in a book that is a big fat lie. Not a single scholar will support as historical or credible what the book of mormon claims: a lost israelite tribe came to the americas and landed somewhere between El Salvador and Honduras in the Pacific Ocean? They build cities? know how to use metal, gold? They found horses and elephants? Cultivated wheat? Lost their language and replaced by Ancient Reformed Egypt? The book of Moses was written by using a papyre send by God to Joseph Smith? The indians use currency to trade for goods? the ignorance of these people really annoys me... 🙁

      expecally sence it was published by one W.R Herst, a know lier and fraud. He admitted that he made up everything that he ever wrote about the "marajuana menece". This book is as ficticous as lord of the rings, but not nearly as entertaining.

      @will, I actually know more about the LDS chuch and the ancient indigenous that you may think. First I used to be LDS and second I was raised in Latinoamerica and I know my culture. I studied the ancient pre-Hispanic civilizations and have been working on archaeological cities so I can say categorically that the Book of Mormon is fictional for me because there's no evidence of any of the cities quoted on it but perhaps, like the Harry Potter series the may be very real for ignorants like you.

      June 15, 2012 at 2:35 am |
    • Will

      @ Charly: I find it hard to believe, based on your past comments, that you have any experience with the LDS or indigenous cultures. Hey, but I'll take you at your word. What site out of the thousands have you worked on? In what culture do you claim your expertise? Lastly, recheck your research on pre-columbian metallurgy and wheat. This has been known for a while now.

    Does the averaage American know that Mitt Romney's family was driven out of the United States because they refused to give up polygamy? That his father was born in Mexico? This man is a cult member. Do you want a diaper wearing cult member in the White House?

      NO I DO NOT. I am no fan of Obama, but romney os evil. And his family is more in line with the FLS then the modern mormons. But people have proven over the past 11 years that there is no end to american foolishness.

      June 15, 2012 at 12:22 am |
    • Will

      So this is what the Obama campaign is going to come down to. Demonizing a religion b/c Obama can't stand on his own pathetic record. No one cares about what Romney's dead ancestors did. Romney is a successful businessman with an upstanding family. Just about all who have worked with him describe him as a man of integrity in all his dealings. Romney stands head and shoulders above Obama and people are starting to clearly see this.

      June 15, 2012 at 12:49 am |
    • Ian

      It's important to note that one of Obama's grandfather practiced polygame more than Romney's did. Seriously. But of course that won't get mentioned will it.

    Mocking Mormons? Think they are lunatics? All of us know families that are Mormons and no kidding aside are the nicest people that would give their shirt off their backs for you. They were the first on site to Katrina. They will help you move or bring you a meal if your wife is sick. Each month they give a percentage of their income to others in need.

    Neighbors would rather have a Mormon family living next to them because they don't drink, smoke, or have wild parties and they don't get into neighbor disputes.

    In return for their pleasantries, you mock them and call them non-Christians. Those that are Christians on this board..compare yourself with a Mormon. Who is most Christ-like? Do they call you names? When was the last time you helped out your neighbor? When was the last time you helped someone move or give a large portion of your income to charity to help others?

    All because of the Book of Mormon? If it is false? Who wrote it? Who could write a book like that? Here is a section of the book.

    32 Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God.

    33 And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot.

    Do the above statements state that Mormon's are not Christians and do not follow Christ? Could you write such a verse?

    June 15, 2012 at 12:11 am |
    • shep

      My Bible says that whoever alters the words of the Bible is a blasphemer. The Book of Mormon certainly does that. Mormons and Mitt Romney are the false prophets the true Bible warns us about. To vote for Mitt Romney is a sin against God.

    • peter

      Mormons are living in darkness and slavery–No matter how "moral" mormons are or "nice" or how many times they smile a day does not change facts–The fact is they are believing in the lie, the false christ, the antichrist of joeseph smith. Cursed is joeseph smith and his christ which he preached and wrote about in the book of mormon,another testament of jesus christ. I recomend anyone to read the book of mormon,another testament of jesus christ or the books of scientology and you will see them for what they are

      June 15, 2012 at 12:16 am |
    • mickey1313

      Fact, the book of mormon claims that black people are black, due to a direct curse from god. Fact, it also claims that when crist reserected , it was in north america, and that the native americans are his chosen people, even though they want nothing to do with christianity.

      June 15, 2012 at 12:25 am |
    • Captain Moroni

      Whoa, slow down Mickey...let me help out. The remnant of people came (people in the Book of Mormon) from Jerusalem and then to the America's. This was because Jerusalem was to be destroyed. In regards to the chosen people, God loves all his children the same, even the Gentiles. With respect to Christ's resurrection, Christ was resurrected in Golgotha where is body laid in the tomb. Resurrection is the reuniting of the body and spirit. Christ's body was not in the America's. I think what you are referring to is that during the three days prior to him ascending to heaven to meet His Father, he visited "sheep" that were not of the fold (people in Israel). These people were in other continents (ie. America). Why would Christ only teach people in one part of the world? There is ancient record that speaks of "quetso coatl" the great white god. These people were not in Jerusalem. Who did they see?

      This scripture from the New Testament:

      John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be cone fold, and one shepherd.

      Here is scripture from the Book of Mormon
      Nephi 15:21 And verily I say unto you, that ye are they of whom I said: Other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

      I hope this helps – take care!

      June 15, 2012 at 1:13 am |
    • Will

      First, Shep your analysis is mistaken, Mickey is just wrong, and Peter's opinion is merely that.....an opinion.... I suggest that those of you so willing to Judge and ridicule another religion take the advice of Gamiliel:

      38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:

      39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
      (Acts 5:38-39)

      June 15, 2012 at 1:21 am |
    • lily

      The book of mormon does not "change" the Bible. It is a separate book all on its own with a completely different history. The whole "adding to the bible" that every anti-mormon quotes refers to the book of Revelations. Wouldn't you be excited if a new gospel was discovered? Say, a gospel of Peter? Or would you start screaming the "no adding to the Bible" again? The book of mormon is simply another testament of Christ. It is the stick of Joseph just like the bible is the stick of Judah (see Ezekiel I believe)

      Please... voting for Mitt Romney a sin? You people really need to overcome your bigotry!

      No Not from me but just an observation of what would happen to some people if some of the conversations here happened face to face. No need to get paranoid.

      GAW–i understand what you are saying–however, you show me a guy or girl arguing politics and religion online and ill show you nothing that could go wrong. I had a boss that was a mormon and i never once mentioned mormonism to him and neither did he to me.

    If kids were not taught religion or evolution until 18 years of age and then given a choice to see what they believe in, after all the facts and whatever religon has to say I wonder how many people would still believe in a flying magical being?

      Brian, watch "Priviledged Planet" on DVD. Awesome cinematography and graphics, with excellent, up-to-date interviews with scientists who've been searching for Earth's and Man's purpose in the universe.
      An 18 yr old who had never been exposed to science nor religion would come out of the viewing room after watching this presentation with a 'religious' sense of awe re our place in the universe.

      b4bigbang, the thought that their is a "pourpose" is one of the reasons that people are foolish. Nature is, it has no pourpose. we are one planet out of hundreds of billions. Insignificent to the universe as a whole. But humans need to feel like they are important. So we make up mythos about a divine being creating us for some higher pourpose. Our true pourpose, the one our genes are programed with is to keep on keepn on, and to survive and multiply, kind of like all other species.
