The library of Agudas Chasidei Chabad (Aguch), located adjacent to 770, was broken into this past Friday night by two Meshichist Thugs. The Aguch Library houses a priceless collection of books and artifacts vital to Chabad history, most of which was amassed by the Lubavitcher Rebbes zt”l over several generations.
The break in was discovered Shabbos morning by a group of worshippers who conduct a minyan in the Previous Rebbe’s apartment during the high holidays. The perpetrators entered the premises by breaking through an upper floor window, cutting themselves in the process.
The two Meshichistim thugs, Manechem (Minka) Borodkin who is a Crown Heights local and the other Avshalom Rom is an Israeli, left a fairly large amount of blood and bloody fingerprints at the scene, making their identification an easy task for investigators.
They were arrested on September 8, 2013 and face charges of break in and entry (See Below).
Chabad officials said this is the first break-in the Aguch library experienced since Barry Gurary, the Previous Rebbe’s grandson, infamously smuggled away many of its books in the mid ‘80s.
The motivation for the break in is still unclear and is being investigated. Nothing is missing from the library’s collection and no sign of any intentional vandalism has been found.
You can follow the case on ecourts by putting in the case number or names of criminals.

It is my hopes that the powers to be will go all the way with this and not chicken out at the last minute (by dropping the charges), as they are known to do.
