A man who got away with stealing $800 from a Michigan store three decades ago has repaid the money, plus some interest. The anonymous thief sent a note and $1,200 to the County sheriff’s department.

The thief admitted breaking into the Middle Mart about 30 years ago. In a letter filled with spelling errors the thief asks for “help in locating a man” to whom the writer owes the money.

He writes:

“I did a very bad thing that I am shamed of and have lived with this guilt. I can’t begin to say how sorry iam but have lived with this guilt too long,” the letter went on to say. “If you do find him, please tell him that I was afoolish stupid man when I did that and iam sorrie.”

The letter was unsigned and had no return address.
