A man faces charges after an unusual incident at a local library. 52-year-old Darrell Bess was taken into custody yesterday, naked, armed with knives and several pounds of stolen cheese.

Bess was ordered by a judge to stay away from the Main branch of the Cincinnati-Hamilton County Public Library in downtown Cincinnati because of prior thefts.

But police say Bess ignored that warning. He was found naked, bathing in the men’s bathroom at the library on Wednesday. Police searched his bag and found two knives, two library CD’s and 4 pounds of parmesan cheese which he allegedly stole from a local store.

Court documents shows Bess is homeless and has a history of bizarre thefts. In May, he was arrested after he allegedly tried to shoplift 10 cans of herring and 16 cans of sardines at a local store. Then on June 13th, he was accused of trying to take several bags of candy from a Graeter’s location.

Bess now faces new charges of carrying a concealed weapon, public indecency, criminal trespass, theft and receiving stolen property.
