An elderly man who stole cash from a Seattle Sears in the 1940s returned the sum with interest on Monday, over 60 years later.
According to King 5 News, the man delivered an envelope listed for Sears Manager around 10 a.m. on Monday to a store in downtown Seattle. Inside was $100 bill and a note to the manager of the store.
During the late [forties] I stole some money from the cash register in the amount of $20-$30, the note read. I want to pay you back this money in the amount of $100 to put in your theft account.
The elderly man was filmed on store surveillance cameras while delivering the envelope and returned cash but was not identified.
I think his conscience has been bothering him for the past 60 years, Sears manager Gary Lorentson told King 5 News.
The Seattle Sears plans to donate the money to families looking to adopt this holiday season.
