Robber apologizes and returns money



A former crook wrote to his robbery victims apologizing and repaying what he'd stolen 11 years earlier.

The owners of Interasian Market and Deli in Nashville, Tenn., received the hand-delivered letter last week, owner Somboon Wu told local TV station WMSV.

The robber's handwritten letter said he was a drug addict who stole a six-pack of beer and $300 from the store. Also included with the letter was $400.

"I do not use drugs anymore, and I feel I must make amends to the people I have hurt in the past," the letter stated. "I hope you will accept this money and find forgiveness. Peace be with you, Anonymous."

Wu, whose father was working during the robbery, told WMSV the man must be someone with a good heart who was in a bad situation.

"We just want to let him know, if he's watching, wherever life takes you, we forgive you for what you did," said Wu.
