Remorseful thief returns NH woman's items
Associated press -
PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) — Police say an apparently remorseful thief who stole a woman's wallet in a New Hampshire supermarket showed up at her door days later to return $90 and a GPS, and brought along an apology letter.
The wallet was stolen from the 61-year-old woman's cart on July 18 in Plaistow. Her wallet was found at a Massachusetts post office.
Then on July 26, the victim heard a knock on her door. A man said he was sorry, returned her belongings, gave her the long letter and fled. Police say the thief probably found her address from something in her wallet.
