A purse snatcher in China returned a cell phone after the owner sent him SMSes. Its a little touching, considering the note he left for her while returning the stolen property.
Pan Aiying, a teacher in the eastern province of Shandong, had her bag containing her mobile phone, bank cards and 4,900 yuan ($630) snatched by a man riding a motorcycle as she cycled home on Friday, Xinhua said, citing the Qilu Evening News.
But on her way out on Sunday morning, she stumbled over a package that had been left in her courtyard only to discover it was her stolen bag. Nothing had been taken.
“Dear Pan: I’m sorry. I made a mistake. Please forgive me,” a letter inside said.
“You are so tolerant even though I stole from you. I’ll correct my ways and be an upright person.”
