Burglar With Conscience Returns Items

ENID, Okla. (AP) – There may be a burglar with a conscience. A television, stereo, and VCR were stolen over the weekend from a house in the small town of Kremlin.

Undersheriff Jerry Niles said the woman who lives at the house called deputies Monday night to say that someone broke into her house again while she was away, returned the electronics gear, even restoring the wiring and repairing a door jamb damaged in the original break-in.

“It was spooky,” Niles said.

He said it was the first time he has ever seen all of the property taken in a burglary returned like that. Deputies are still investigating the case.

    I live so simply, that eo teases me that if anyone breaks in they will leave $20 and take out the trash. Ha!

    That is wonderfully outrageous! What a delightful turn of events.

    This reminds me of the old Nasruddin joke where his wife wakes him up in the middle of the night and says, There’s a burglar downstairs! To which Nasruddin replies; Shhhh! Don’t disturb him! He might find something!
