TRENTON, N.J. — A man who stole a cellphone from a New Jersey business has returned it four days later with a letter of apology.
Surveillance video captured the man taking the phone from Butch’s Welding in Trenton on Sept. 11. And the security system also recorded a man tossing the phone back over the company’s fence Tuesday along with a handwritten note.
The note said: “I’m the one who took your phone. I’m in a desperate situation. I’m sorry I hurt you. I’m not that type but a situation can lead some to do dumb things.”
The daughter of the shop’s owner tells NJ.com that they are hoping it’s a lesson learned.
But police are pursuing the case and hope the man turns himself in.
