Seforim in a shul are meant for use and not display. There is no way they can realistically be charged with theft. What happened here is obviously related to the fight that the traditional jews of the area are having with the Yeshiva.

It's much better to steal from an old, not so Orthodox shul, than to Gd forbid go to a concert where there are Jewish boys and girls.
At least they didn't take down any girls' phone numbers! Whew!
Now we know they good innocent boys following the derech of the Gedolim.

That's why a Bochur is called 'Bochur', to at least be 'Bocher' Hara B'miyuto!
