A rare first edition copy of the Book of Mormon has been recovered.

Helen Schlie, the owner of the bookstore, called FOX 13 Tuesday night to share the good news.

The book was reported stolen from an Arizona bookstore in May. Schlie said it is valued at $100,000 and was not insured.

Mesa Police investigators working with the FBI arrested a man in Washington D.C. and found the book.
