A good move would be to leave the room for 2 minutes with the student who had his books taken and say that when you come back into the room, if the books have not been returned, the entire class is getting detention. This puts pressure on the main culprits then, they won't want to be responsible for getting the entire class a detention, and will make them think twice about repeating such a stunt.
