Couple allegedly urinated on Quran at Santa Fe library

A couple in Santa Fe allegedly urinated on copies of the Quran and Bill Clinton’s autobiography and moved  copies of the Bible and books by conservative provocateur Ann Coulter to prominent locations in a library.

The Santa Fe New Mexican first reported the incident, to which Santa Fe Public Library employees alerted police last week.

There is no video evidence of the couple’s alleged actions, but the library manager told police three copies of the Quran were damaged “by a yellowish liquid substance,” the New Mexican reported, citing a police report.

The couple had caused trouble before.

From the New Mexican:

On March 3, library staff asked the couple to move their vehicle, a white Ford F-250 truck towing a white double-axle trailer, from the library’s parking lot, according to a police report.

The man “scoffed” at the library staffer “and began muttering about how everything is under ‘surveillance,’ ” reads the police report. On March 6, the male came into the library carrying a “large knife, sheathed, on his belt,” the report says. He became “irate” when he was told to put the knife back into the vehicle, saying he had the right to bear arms.
