Saturday night thiever says sorry to victims

BERLIN (Reuters) - A thief in Germany, plagued by guilt after robbing a kiosk, went back days later to deliver a note of apology and pay compensation to the victims.

Police said the business in Kamen, near the western town of Unna, was broken into on Saturday night and looted of cigarettes and alcohol, suffering looses of about 4,300 euros.

Arriving for work on Thursday, staff were surprised to find an envelope stuffed with 400 euros ($590) and a note which read “sorry -- to make up for Saturday night!.”
