Salvation Army Kettle Crook Returns Stolen Cash With Apology

BOARDMAN, Ohio (December 6, 2012)--A thief who made off with cash from a Salvation Army red kettle at a northern Ohio mall this week evidently had a change of heart.

Police near Youngstown, Ohio said that two days after the kettle was emptied out, someone left $130 and an apology at the Salvation Army.

The note found at the Salvation Army on Wednesday morning read, "Here is the money I took plus money for a new kettle and bell.”

It also said, “Please forgive me.”

Police in Boardman, Ohio said a witness saw someone who was 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 was in the kettle.
