Remorseful thief returns NH woman's items

Friday, August 05, 2011

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.

Deputy Police Chief Kathleen Jones tells The Eagle-Tribune although the woman is happy to have her belongings back, she's unnerved that the thief knows where she lives.

Jones says the thief still faces charges when caught.
