Burglar Breaks Into House to Leave Apology Note

Not from the Onion:

A thief broke into a family home near Queenstown, New Zealand twice in the same day – once to steal and the second time to say sorry.

The unknown offender struck first while homeowner Graeme Glass was at work on Tuesday, smashing a window at his Arthurs Pt home to gain entry and stealing a $1200 laptop, a camera and a wallet containing his American Express credit card.

The second intrusion came later the same day, when the burglar – apparently racked by guilt – decided to return the goods, as well as a basketball and two pairs of gloves bought using Mr Glass’ credit card in nearby Queenstown.
