Thieves Return Stolen Computers To Nonprofit With Apology Note: Video

"Burglars in Southern California apparently had a change of heart after stealing from a nonprofit organization. The very next day, they returned the items and left an apology letter, NBC Los Angeles reported.


The thieves broke into the San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services on July 31, taking several computer towers and monitors along with a laptop."

Maybe they should have kept a couple of the computers and enrolled in an online college.
