Authorities on Thursday were looking for a man who took a "Little Free Library" built by a Girl Scout in Arcadia.
A surveillance video shows a driver in a maroon pick-up truck stopping on the street and taking the library built by Grace Wong, who made it from scratch as part of a Girl Scouts project over the summer.
Her mother, Debbie Wong, said the man might have been misguided.
“I don’t think he understood exactly that this was a community library," she said. "I think he may have thought it was furniture and just took it."
The library, one of thousands across the country, had a label that read "Take a book, return a book."
Grace is optimistic.
"My hope is that it’s just a misunderstanding and he’ll return the library to us," she said.
