Thief returns cash from Ohio kettle with apologyDecember 6, 2012 @ 7:33 am
BOARDMAN, Ohio (AP) - A thief who made off with cash from a Salvation Army red kettle at a northern Ohio mall this week apparently has had a change of heart.
Police near Youngstown say that two days after the kettle was emptied out, someone left $130 and an apology at the Salvation Army.
A note found at the Salvation Army on Wednesday morning read: "Here is the money I took plus money for a new kettle and bell."
The Vindicator newspaper in Youngstown ( http://bit.ly/SzAE8b) reports that the note also said "please forgive me."
Police in Boardman say a witness saw someone wearing a Salvation Army jacket take the kettle Monday night while a bell-ringer was on a break.
A Salvation Army official says it's unclear how much money had been in the kettle.
