Burglars return computers with apology letter after realizing they had stolen from charity which helps sexual violence victims 

Thieves who ransacked a charity’s office had a crisis of conscience and returned the stolen goods – along with a contrite letter of apology.  The non-profit organization, which counsels those who are victims of violent sexual attacks, was hit by burglars on July 31 in San Bernardino County, California.

Conscience kicks in: Thieves who stole computer equipment from a California charity returned the goods the following night after finding out the machines were used for

The burglars dropped into the building from the roof and made off with laptops and other computer equipment. The director of San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services Candy Stallings was called to the scene at 4am.

She said that police officers were asking questions among the local transient community and explaining the work that the charity carried out. She said that the following night, she was called out again by police but what greeted her at the organization’s door was a pleasant surprise – all the charity’s computer equipment had been returned.

There was a note attached which read: ‘We had no idea what we were takeing [sic]. Here your stuff back we hope that you guys can continue to make a difference in peoples live. God bless.’

Ms Stallings told NBC: ‘We were all pretty shocked. You’ve got to be kidding me. I was in disbelief, I got chills, I got very emotional.’ The charity chief now says she plans to frame a copy of the note.
