CONSETT, England, April 15 (UPI) -- A British book dealer accused of stealing a Shakespeare first edition arrived in court dressed as Argentine Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara.

Raymond Scott, 52, faces six charges of theft and handling stolen goods after he allegedly stole the 1623 collection of William Shakespeare's works, valued at $4.5 million, from Durham University, The Sun reported Wednesday.

He arrived in Consett Magistrates' Court with three women and a bodyguard who were also dressed as revolutionaries.

The Sun said Scott previously showed up for a court date dressed as Boss Hogg from popular TV show "Dukes of Hazzard."
