Thieves With A Conscience

From North Dakota. Mark Neary's car was robbed Wednesday. The concerned thief left him a note detailing what was taken and encouraging Mark to lock his car in the future. Apparently the robber also thought Mark's taste in music was 'awesome'. In the long run Mark was actually lucky, it seems the keys were in the car too. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090718/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_thief_s_advice

From New Jersey. A homeowner got a most unusual visit Wednesday. Craig Fletcher,35, stopped by to apologise for burglarizing the home on June 29th. Craig did not actually take anything with him during the robbery as the homeowner arrived and chased him causing Craig to drop the bag of loot. He was none the less arrested for that burglary and another in the neighborhood. http://news.aol.com/article/burglar-apologizes-is-arrested/576064

From Utah. The SnowShack, a sno cone stand, was robbed Wednesday. The armed man apologised to the 16 year old running the stand. He said he owed his brother $80 and had to commit the robbery to pay it back. The girl handed over the money and the apologetic man ran away. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/weird-news/story/1146682.html

Must have been something about Wednesday. Wednesday's thief is full of woe I guess.

Is this history repeating itself? There are/were stories like this during The Great Depression. Good folk turned to lawlessness out of desperation.

I read a book recently where one of the characters was a thief and he'd leave similar notes saying what he took and how he got in and such.
