Caught on Camera: Florida Burglar Returns Stolen Items

burglarAVENTURA, FL – A man was caught on camera cleaning out a family’s garage. But he wasn’t doing them a favor, he was stealing from them.

In the video, you can see the man backing up his truck to the home and loading it up with anything and everything. But perhaps what’s more shocking is that a few days later, the man returned to the home and gave everything back.

He left the homeowner a letter and $50. In the letter, he apologized and said he recycled metal and thought the home was vacant. But police think he returned the stuff after he saw his face on the local news. Or maybe the thief really is a softie and just had a change of heart.
